7+ Best Ohuhu Anniversary Worthy Purchases

To celebrate Ohuhu's 8th anniversary this June, I've created a list of their best (and my favorite) anniversary-worthy products.

From vibrant markers to versatile sketchbooks, Ohuhu has consistently delivered quality tools that inspire creativity and elevate artistic expression.

Top Anniversary Worthy Ohuhu Purchases

1. Honolulu Alcohol Markers

The Ohuhu Honolulu markers are available in 320 colors along with a colorless blender to create a wide range of hues and effects. Each marker can be bought individually or in a set. 

I found the vast color selection to be particularly impressive, as it covers all hues and tones thoroughly.

Vibrant and Consistent Ink

One of the standout features of these markers, in my experience, is their vibrancy. The caps accurately represent the ink color, and the ink is even more vibrant than other brands I've tried. The consistent ink flow is impressive, allowing me to color tiny details precisely without bleeding and quickly cover large areas without the marker feeling dry or leaving streaks.

Versatile Tip Configurations

You can choose between 2 configurations: a brush and a chisel nib (Honolulu) or a brush and a fine tip (Honolulu B). My personal favorite is the brush and chisel tip combination. 

The brush tip is perfect for blending colors and creating soft gradients. It's also great for drawing details by applying light pressure and coloring larger areas quickly by applying more pressure. I find the brush nib easy to control, and it allows for a high degree of precision in my work.

The chisel tip, while not always necessary, is handy for drawing precise, straight lines more easily. The fine point is also excellent for fine and precise details, making these markers versatile for different drawing needs.

Seamless Blending & Quick Drying

In my experience, the Honolulu markers excel in blending, a quality I expect from high-quality alcohol-based markers. On thicker paper, I can create smooth color transitions effortlessly. However, on thinner paper, blending can be a bit more challenging.

When coloring, the ink soaks quickly into the paper, preventing smudge marks and keeping my drawing clean. Additionally, I appreciate how evenly these markers color, as they don't leave uneven patches when covering larger areas.

Convenient Design & Portable

I find these Honolulu markers very comfortable to hold, even for long periods, as they fit well in my hand and are a bit thicker than most other markers I've tried.

These markers have color-coded caps that make it easy to find the right shade quickly, and the markers come in a handy carrying case, making them perfect for artists on the go. 

The caps are easy to remove and replace, which I found convenient during long drawing sessions. Plus, you can store the cap on the other end of the marker, which is a thoughtful design feature.

Perfect for All Sorts of Drawing Styles

I find alcohol markers like these to be a great medium for various drawing styles. Personally, I enjoy creating realistic drawings with them. They are also great for anime-style drawings and doodling. Here are some marker drawing ideas to get you inspired. 

The consistent ink flow allows me to work on detailed pieces without worrying about bleeding, and the markers color very evenly, making them ideal for large areas without uneven patches.

You do however need a paper that works well with these markers. Using thicker paper can help achieve the best blending results and prevent any bleed-through.

Quality & Safety

These markers feel very well-built and durable, with a design that prevents them from rolling off the table. Each marker is clearly labeled with color names and numbers on the caps, though not on the barrel itself.

The packaging is effective for protecting the markers during shipping and storage. It’s convenient for carrying the markers around. The sets come with empty color swatches you can fill in, and a plastic pad to lay under your paper to prevent the ink from staining your desk.

Ohuhu markers also conform to ASTM D-4236 standards, ensuring they are safe to use and high-quality. Ohuhu also offers replacement tips to maintain consistent line quality over time and the markers are refillable, making them a more environment-friendly choice compared to other brands.

2. Maui Water Based Markers

Just like the alcohol-based Honolulu markers, these Maui water-based markers are available with a brush and a fine tip. The fine tip with a width of 0.4mm is great for detailed work and linework while the brush tip is great for coloring larger areas and calligraphy.

These markers come in 160 different colors and are good for lots of drawing styles. They're great for calligraphy, doodling, realism, etc.

High-Quality Ink 

The ink is acid-free, highly pigmented, and water-based, ensuring your artwork lasts longer. Plus, it’s non-toxic, making it safe for both adults and children.

No Bleed-Through 

These markers are designed to prevent ink from bleeding through paper, so you can color and create without ruining the next pages. The ink also dries quickly making them mostly smudge-resistant.

Color-Coded Caps

Quickly find the marker you need with color-coded caps, which also help prevent the tips from drying out. However, the caps don't have a color name or code on them making it a little more difficult to find specific colors.

As with most marker brands, not all caps match the ink color perfectly. That's why I always recommend swatching each color first to see their true colors.

Packaging Feedback

The Maui markers have the best packaging I have ever seen on markers like these. It looks good, it's sturdy, and it's excellent for keeping them neatly stored.

Fast Drying
