Brush Pens were originally used in East Asian calligraphy as an analog to fountain pens. The tip of a brush pen mimics a traditional brush used for painting and makes it a very unique tool for modern calligraphy and art.
Fudepens (which is just another word for brush pens) are also very popular among comic book artists who prefer them over the traditional way of painting. The first company that created a brush pen was Kuretake from Japan. They've launched their first brush pens in 1973.
The best Brush Pens for Beginners
Want to learn brush lettering? There are a couple of beginner-friendly options on the market. First of all, there are two main types of brush pens: small and large, and both of them come with tips that are more or less flexible (soft tip or firm tip brush pens).
Small brush pens with firm tips are known to be perfect for beginners because the tip produces good line variation and requires less control.
