Stationery Recommendations

Of course, when it comes to doodling, you can use anything you already have.

But if you want to get something special, here are some of my favorite doodling supplies.

  • A comfortable pencil. I always recommend you use a pencil first when you doodle so you can make sure your doodle is the best it can be before you add a permanent pen. That means you’ll spend a lot of time using a pencil so it’s best to have one with a comfortable grip. I recommend Pilot Dr. Grip Pencil.
  • Fineliner. A good fineliner with its dark black lines is a perfect pen for doodling. I recommend Sakura Pigma Micron, and they come with different nib sizes so you can add more variety to your drawings.
  • Markers. In case you’re really into adding color to your doodles like I am, you’ll need some markers to do that. My top pick is Zebra Mildliners, but I can also recommend Crayola Super Tips since they come in a pack with many colors and are pretty affordable.

Now that you have all the supplies ready let’s start doodling!
