  15. ooh I might be late but I absolutely love Chris Samnee and Phil Noto, could we get more on them, maybe their materials and/or videos? I know Chris Samnee has the pens he uses listed on his instagram bio, not sure if it's still there. I took a screenshot of it once, so if it's off I'll post it, but I'd still love more information on them!
