Leonardo Da Vinci was dyslexic, ambidextrous, and predominantly left handed, which allowed him to draw with one hand while writing backward with the other. This produced a mirror-image script around the drawings of his inventions that other people had trouble reading, just as he’d intended. Source
Yay, I tried that meme thing where you draw the same picture with all of your hands and feet- It’s amazing, I am left handed and my left foot also worked better than my right foot so this is a beautiful proof for the fact that it’s really about the brain and not only about practice.
(the cat is my favorite because in the first picture it looks surprised, in the second picture it looks concerned, in the third picture it’s very unhappy and in the last one it’s just super pissed.)
Did you know left handed people tend to live less long on average that right handed ones? This is because of the number of industrial and consumer accidents that occur because the world is designed for right handers. Lefties, here’s a shout out to you.
these pens are a favorite of mine and are not only quick drying but very smooth, comparable to the muji gel ink pens. the smooth payoff does take its toll as these run out rather quickly depending on use. however i have never used one up yet, as i usually lose these or someone “borrows” it before it runs out.
the tips are needle point or metal tip / 0.5mm or 0.7 mm. pictured above are 0.7mm with needle point tip.
i was introduced to these by a friend, and although these were not an instant favorite, i have grown to appreciate them. they are not quite as smooth as the pentel energel rtx, but have a finer point and therefore dry significantly faster.
the tips are extra fine (0.3mm) or fine (0.4mm). jetpens also sells a black one with a 0.25mm tip.
besides these specific recommendations, i’d say that felt tip pens tend to dry more quickly than gel or ballpoint pens, and definitely quicker than fountain pens. some felt tip pen favorites in the studyblr community are the staedtler triplus fineliners [ 25 | singles ] and stabilo point 88 fineliners [ 30 | singles ].
