Nitram bâton review by Nic De Jesus

Drawing Tools

"After experimenting with various drawing tools I have now settled on a handful that work for my practice. The Nitram bâton is one of them. The bâton’s simple, elegant design reminds me to slow down and enter the next phase of my work. It offers a completely different experience from when I start out — a more fluid and controlled execution while still retaining the original energy of the composition." - Nic De Jesus
