I really have to post more of these things. I keep telling myself, I’ll try to be more regular about it. For some reason I tend to post them on my Flickr Page. Feel free to follow that. I thought I’d post some of my recent uploads here and hopefully I’ll post more in both places.
I’m willing to bet like most artists you test out pen after pen till you find one you like. If you’re also like me you finally find a pen you like only to find they don’t make it any more when you go back for more…. So I ended up frankenpenning my favorite pen together.
Here’s what it is.
I really like these two pen barrels. They feel good in my hand and I have one that’s skinny and one that’s a little fatter. Cause sometimes you just want to hold a fatter pen.
This in refill has a 1.0 mm point. It flows like a garden hose and the ink almost spills out if it. This makes for a very smooth sketching experience.
Since this pen maker won’t stock it regular office supplies stores I’ve had to resort to finding my own refills on line. I think I better order another batch just in case. This order was 50 which = 100 refills.
I do think I better order more. The ink flows so fast out of this pen. If I spend 3 hours sketching things I can totally drain the refill.
Check out how this brand caps their refills so they won’t dry out. I hope they continue to do this. Now they will last forever.
I’m not putting any links to my sources because I want them all to myself. So there!
Some landscape sketches I did at lunch today.
Doodled some space stations at lunch today.
