For drawing and painting on a computer, a vector-based program (as opposed to a pixel-based one) is undoubtedly the best. Vector-based programs include Adobe Illustrator and offer concepts like line correction and can be zoomed and unzoomed unlimited amounts without loss of quality.
I don't know if GIMP supports vector or not...
As for nice drawing supplies, try an old-fashioned drafting or architecture store rather than some ritzy art(see: Scrapbooking) store. You can find things like drafting pencils, led-holders (which also come in blue AND purple, which show up even less in copies and scans) in places like this often at better prices.
