This guy was a special request for a friend as I was making the Hawaiian Coloring book. Her Grandson loves sharks and wanted a "surfing shark" to put on his wall. I instantly loved the idea and happily obliged.

140# Multimedia paper - It's thick and able to withstand layers of water-based paints. I also enjoy the texture of the 300 series paper. Get 2 packs (32 sheets each) of Arteza Watercolor paper from Amazon by clicking here.
Tombow Calligraphy Pens (fine tips) - My mother gave me a set of these for my birthday and my artistic mind burst with glittery glee when I realized how easily these pens made thick and thin lines in a single stroke! They also ink right over the chalky gouache paint (when it is dry) so if I want to make a piece pop with bold black outlines I can. As an artist I love tools and materials that give me more options to use them. Get a set of 2 pens (different sizes) from Amazon by clicking here.
Gouache paints - I love these better than watercolor because once it dries I can go back and put more layers on top to achieve richer colors and depth. I also love the chalky look and feel of the finished piece in person. It almost looks like pastels, which I love but I hate the mess! These paints provide the win-win of rich colors and texture without the mess. Get a set of 24 colors from Amazon by clicking here.
