Philadelphia native Jesse Geller a.k.a. NEMEL dropped by the studio last week for a visit. He used K-60 markers in every color filling a canvas with his signature overlapping tag style. We took photos throughout the process, check it out, we think it turned out great!

We’re very pleased to announce the newest addition to the Krink family! We’ve had many requests over the years for water-based inks. It took time to find the right formulation, and now it’s finally here! The K-32 is filled with permanent, odor-free, water-based inks. This ultra smooth opaque ink retains vibrant color on most dark or light surfaces and flows effortlessly on paper and canvas. The chisel-nib offers two line widths in 11 bright colors to suit virtually any purpose.
Available now in our web shop!
This meticulous drawing was created by Noah McDonough using a Krink K-70 marker on paper. The piece is done in Noah’s classic graffiti style and employs a stipple technique for shading and depth. Noah was really interested in taking this style and scaling it up to a larger size, we set him up in the studio with a 5×12 foot canvas, a few K-72 markers, and let him get to work. The results are pretty amazing.
We also made a silkscreen print which is available now in our web shop. Edition of 25, signed, numbered and dated. Check out the photos below.

To work on a large canvas, Noah used a K-72 marker with matte black water-based ink. He flipped the K-72 nib to get a perfect circle and then used a razor to help loosen it up, this technique gives a softer feel when drawing.
Thousands of dots and a few markers later, the canvas was done!
