SUPER BLACK DICK BLICK BOND BLOCK
A bunch of marker pick-ups from Dick Blick on Bond Street. CHARTPAK FINE TIP SUPER BLACK I don’t really give graphic design markers much props or elevated status in my marker collection.

These don’t fit the criteria to be included in my black marker collection; they’re too small. But wanted to throw up a post and some pics because I like the packaging. The markers still work good.
