Chameleon Pen Blends Colors On The Fly, Creates Awesome Gradients


Drawing with an actual pen and ink is a thing that people still do, no matter how much digital drawing tablets have evolved. The Chameleon Pen is an interesting new type of drawing tool that allows you to produce multiple color tones, stunning gradations, highlights, shading & seamless blends, all with one pen. It does this by a process they call “fusing”, during which the nib of your pen enters into contact with the mixing nib of another flask containing coloured toning medium; the longer these two stay in contact, the stronger the gradient will be. The toning medium basically flows into your pen when the nibs touch, mixes in the nib, and then flows back out smoothly as you draw. It’s rather complicated to explain properly, but watch the video below and you’ll see the beauty.

Prices start at $5 for one random colored pen, and $25 for 5 skin or gray toned Chameleon Pens.

The Year 2013 In Review, In a Single Cartoon


Check out the larger version of the image here.

A lot of things happened in 2013. Athletes got injured, while some sporting events gained traction. New video games were released, and several consoles went head to head shortly after their releases. Some epic TV shows ended, but some pretty awesome new ones quickly took their place. There was the rise of a leader and the fall of several. Some important revelations were made by a whistleblower who’s still on the run. This made headlines at first, until some celebrities antics onstage distracted the world from the news that mattered.

Tasked by Beutler Ink with cramming as much of this as possible into a single image is artist Mario Zucca. The result is the drawing above, which is pretty impressive in itself. You can check out Mario’s site for some behind-the-scenes info and for a list of the events depicted in the image.
