This month’s box was so much fun! I drew myself in a manga style. This was SO outside of my comfort zone as I’m terrible at things that aren’t realistic.

If you are unfamiliar with the Smart Art Box, it is a monthly subscription box where each month you have a box full of full sized art supplies sent to your home, complete with instructions and all the information you need to try that medium and project. Because they are full sized supplies, depending on the project, most of the time you will have enough to make several projects!

If you’re within the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Denmark, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, or Austria and would like to order your own Smart Art Box, head to and use the code COLORJOY to get $5 off your subscription for life

This month’s box contained

  • 7 Sakura Micron Pens
  • 6×8″ pad of Strathmore 400 Series Mixed Media Paper
  • Alvin Draft Line Pencil 0.5mm
  • 3 Touch Five Twin Brush Markers
  • Creative Mark Art Stroke Eraser


This box was provided to me by Smart Art Box to make this video, but my comments and opinions are my own.
