    So many pens, so little time... Don't even get me started on paper. :)

    For quick sketches and general workhorse use, I love the Sharpie Ultra Fine Point retractable and cap'd versions in Red, Blue and Black. Pretty inexpensive and gets the job done.

    For more detailed sketches that require more layers of definition, I use Staedtler Pigment Liners and Triplus Fineliner (in assorted greys, silvers, greens, blues, and reds). Plus side for the Staedtlers is the color selection. I can get colors real close to most of the "official" app colors that we have defined as part of our UI color system. They also have a neat system to store and display your pens for easy selection....

    I avoid --Sakura Micron pens-- like the plague... every single one I've owned (had been using them since college) has exploded either in my pocket or all over my work during sketching. :(

    Was recently gifted a Copic color marker, which I'm loving way more than my old Prismacolors. Great for quickly laying down a blanket light-grey modal layer. :)

    Also very fond of Uni-ball Signos series gel pens in white and black... Used to sign and number posters with the white pen.

    I'll... just stop here for now... :)
