Steph & Adam: Hi art friends!
Steph: Today is a very hot day Adam: it’s so hot today! Steph: anywho, today we’re doing a video with Tiger markers! there is so much back story to these pens seriously, this is the most backstory we’ve ever had to like an art product okay so someone called Abbie Rollingson commented on one of our videos a few weeks ago saying like “hey you guys, have you ever considered doing a picture with tiger markers before?” Adam: and we were like, what are those?? S: we were both like, we’ve never heard of them so I thought, hm I like taking in new suggestions for art supplies so I went online and typed in Tiger markers I realised they’re only made by that shop Tiger, which is usually based in built up cities *whispers* we’re not in a built up city
Adam: yeah we live in the middle of nowhere!! S: haha yeah! so I looked online and they don’t really sell much stuff through their website A: we couldn’t find them anywhere online at all
S: yeah, I had to send out a literal search party of my friend’s and family who lived in built up city areas across the WORLD I had friends in the Netherlands, Ireland and Scotland. EVERYONE was looking for these pens and they kept coming back to me saying “nope, this one doesn’t have them” so I’d have to cross that Tiger off the list I was like AGH are we ever going to find these “have they been discontinued?”
Adam: that’s what we honestly thought, we thought they were completely gone Steph: so by a miracle, my lovely, lovely friend Aleyah. Infact! I think I have a photograph with Aleyah I should definitely plug her for this! A: have you got a photo with her?? 😮 S: yeah! there’s me & aleyah a few years ago A: I’m sure she was pulling that face when she was looking for them S: So I’ll put a link to Aleyah in the description box because she saved the day! check her stuff out guys 😀 she went into, I think it was a Westfield in London and she managed to find some! then she sent these 2 packs as a complete surprise for us! A: so thank you Aleyah! Seriously, you have no idea how much it means S: Adam says they look like little Tumblr pens A: I thought they WERE Tumblr pens!! S: one of the reason I was so excited to have these is because I have this elaborate idea in my head and I was like “nobody will guess how inventive this idea is” “and I need these sbebific pens”
S: *meant to say specific haha* S: so the other day I was walking along with Adam and he was like “I know what your idea is” and I was like “no you don’t, I haven’t written it down or anything.” Because I do like to keep these videos as a genuine surprise Adam: so you can prepare for them while I don’t have a clue :
