Everyone already knew this I suppose but I just found out that R. Crumb uses a Rapidograph pen for sketching--although it's one of the crumb-y American-made "Koh-I-Noor" ones and he likes to talk about how it clogs and he has to clean it every day. Nevertheless he gets some good results from it!

If you can find it, watch the documentary called "CRUMB" made back in mid 90's, it's very interesting, you see him sketching with his Rapidograph. It was on DVD but might be hard to find now.

Yeah, I'd like to check that out some time. There are excerpts from it here, and you can see him using it a little-- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FlT4QZchxQw

Also there's this older BBC documentary on YouTube which I should try getting around to checking out first maybe:
