That’s hooey. Special tools don't make all the difference—just look at what Marty Harris can do with a simple ball point pen.Yes you know that already, but every so often your critical mind might try and tell you this, might suggest that your drawings or paintings or quilts would be better if you had the Wonder Pen 3000, the Ultra Brush FS (fine stuff), or the Magical Motion Revolving Quilting Arm EX (excellent, as opposed to the SP model which is only super).
What’s really happening is a form of procrastination.
If you have any old tool and you work consistently with it for a set amount of time the improvement you see will be greater than any improvement you see if you have the Wonder Pen 3000 and only use it on holidays! (Remember what Malcolm Gladwell says in Outliners.)
