Let me elucidate briefly on a pet theory of mine: turquoise makes everything better.
Let’s not get caught up in niceties and preciseties—turquoise, sky blue, aquamarine, call it what you will—you know the color. And it makes everything wonderful. I will lay out the evidence.
I wasn’t that thrilled with this pen originally. Then I loaded it with a Rotring Turquoise cartridge. Like magic. MAGIC.
Once again, was not into this pen in its original colors. Picked up the turquoise model—better by leaps, and perhaps even bounds.
A color that’s almost worth the excessive price.
Regular sketch: meh, whatever. Blue lead sketch? DRAWN BY A WIZARD.
And if the power of turquoise can do all that for a mediocre product, how much better it makes the already amazing, like the Lamy Safari, Pilot FriXion, Sharpie Pen, Pentel Slicci, Zebra Sarasa, and suchlike. The reasons for why turquoise is so marvelous remain unknown, but we know the result just the same: turquoise makes everything better.
