An Eagle Nib Gets Properly Used


Hat tip to Penucopia for finding this amazing video done with a Sailor King Eagle nib and Sailor Orange ink. Follow ohyayeh on Instagram to see more of his calligraphy. He is also on Facebook, but there are more videos on Instagram.




Speedball Elegant Writer Is A Cheap Thrill


Playing with the Speedball Elegant Writer is a lot of fun. Just grab a wet brush and make it dance around the paper. The more water the better so a paper of at least 150gsm will make the best surface and yield the most satisfying results, but Midori and Tomoe River paper like it, too. Four pens for less than $10 makes this an inexpensive tool for journal decorating or mixed media art. I predict much doodling ahead.

Links From Pens To Nibs To Words


If nothing else, do watch Leigh’s video about nibs. It will sort any confusions about flex nibs plus it’s a joy to watch her use any sort of pen.

Tuckered out after a bath and fifteen minutes of zoomies to get dry. Aren’t I just the cutest thing ever!
