This is Sams Choice: The basics for me are a lot of black, wedge tips, and a few Big Ones. My signature colours seem to be the bright blue, bright green and dark yellow. Any brush tips would be great for people interested in fancy lettering/modern calligraphy. I also really valued the Bikablo book when I was starting out. I keep it pretty simple.

"When I choose my markers for visual facilitation, I use three guiding ideas: clarity, readability, and expressiveness.
The first is Clarity. I choose Big Ones to draw oversized headings that get to the heart of the concept, and to clearly link ideas together. I want my pens to draw text and images that help make information clear and understandable.
The second is Readability. It's important that participants can read what I'm writing. In my practice, I might be drawing and facilitating at the same time, or I could be listening intently and drawing. I like the No. 1 markers because the nibs keep my writing consistent. I like to use black, and then highlight key words in a bright colour.
Finally, Expressiveness is what makes each practitioner unique! I use the brush tips for a softer, artistic quality in my lettering, and often to draw an "anchor" image as a feature on the page. One of the things new practitioners always ask me is "how do you know what to draw?" You have to develop your visual vocabulary, and keep practicing! Start with the Bikablo books to build your visual vocabulary, and a big stack of paper. There's an old cartoonist joke that to get better you take a stack of paper as tall as you, and you draw something on each page: By the time you've drawn on each page, you'll see an improvement. For visual practitioners, practice is key - it strengthens muscle memory and helps us respond quickly and confidently in the moment."
