I like the pen so much that I introduced it to many of my friends.

Q.Which Stylo series pen do you use?
Tradio stylo sketch pen
Q.How did you find the Stylo/Tradio pen?
A friend in artschool introduced it to me. And because i like it so much i introduced it to a lot of other people (also used to sell them for a little while).
Q.How long have you been using the Stylo/Tradio pen?
I think 20 years now.
Q.When do you like to use the Stylo/Tradio pen?
When I’m drawing, on paper not larger than A3.

Q.Is there anyone who uses this pen around you?
Most of my art friends use it.
Q.When have you enjoyed using your Stylo/Tradio pen?
It is quite a fast pen, and I like to draw quite fast. I mean: most of the time it can keep up with my movements. And it is the only pen I know which has such a wide range of thickness of lines. This is of course evoked by pressure and speed, how the tip touches the paper, but also because of the way the tip is shaped. The possibilities make the user very aware of the effects a gesture can make. Which is why i suggest this pen to people who want to learn to draw better.
Q.What would you like to say to the Stylo/Tradio to celebrate their 40th anniversary this year?
Surprised my favorite pen is from the same year I was born. Congratulations! Keep up the good work.
