Don’t be an arsehole, buy a Lousy Liner.

Do you like to simultaneously save the world whilst you doodle inappropriate hand gestures on professional documents? Me too!

I also always feel better about myself when I take my plastic-wrap-free lunch to work or hand the barista my reusable, glass, non-for-profit branded coffee cup and say loud enough for the line up to hear, ‘can I have it in my KeepCup please?’

I am one of those environmental dickheads as some distant relatives of mine claim we are. I actually think of myself as one person whose actions may just be a drop in the ocean, but that the ocean is made up of billions of drops, so I say we should try not to fuck it up.

Anyway, this is why I like to draw, branding-side up, with my Lousy Liner. Although I tend to get my shapes down first with the commitment level of a politician, in pencil, I now will draw exclusively* with the Lousy pen.

*Not really, I sometimes need a fat line so I hang my head in shame and pick up a plastic, disposable felt-tip marker. 

Let me tell you about this humble pen since you’ve taken the time to read the ramblings of an identified environmental dickhead.

The 0.8mm tip is specially formulated for anyone who has chicken scratch for handwriting but would like to keep their dignity. Its smooth-gliding tip makes such an elegant mark on the page it can make a cartoon butthole appeal to someone seeking their next tattoo.

My favourite part about this pen though, is its ability to turn the single piece of technology that I argue with the most, into something actually useful. The printer cartridge. I hate printer cartridges with so many nerves in my body that the last time my home printer (RIP) needed them changed, I cried and took up smoking. So knowing that Lousy have turned these arseholes that would otherwise be avoiding the composting process in landfill, into beautiful writing and drawing materials, I am in love.

I now have a special pocket in my bag next to my phone where my Lousy Liner travels with me. This pen came into my life at a time where I was rediscovering my love for illustration. It glides across cartridge, parchment and recycled paper like Jimmy McElroy was born to figure skate.

This pen means that when I want to draw a long, sweeping and swirling line for the fat tentacle of an octopus, I pause for no fluff, I pause for no blotch. When I want to shade the dark pits of a skeletons eye holes, I stay within those eye hole lines like a purple-haired woman does in her forest-themed colouring book. I am now getting carried away but you get the idea.

So, if you’d like to elevate your daily scribing experiences, be you a professional or a vandal, please be considerate of the current cesspool of disposable pens in landfill who are on a date with the unfestering, forever-preserved plastic of the ink cartridges.

Buy yourself a 6 pack of Lousy Liners and make sure you’re seated when you draw, because it’s going to knock your socks off!
