If you somehow missed it… During December I did a big series on using fountain pens for sketching, and I thought some of you might be interested in what has changed since then – if anything. (Who am I kidding – of course there has been changes!)
Basically not a lot in terms of my core sketching pens. However I have:
- Started using two pens that I didn’t highly recommend in my review of basic pens – Platinum Plaisir and Pilot Prera. It wasn’t that they are not good pens, but just that they are a little more pricey than the other options. I am not saying that I recommend you go out and buy them, but I am excited that I have found a use for them. I am using Preppys (or is it Preppies?) for all my work writing (and especially my Get To Work Book) and the Plaisir is more robust to be in my kit. I am a little obsessive about being neat in my planner and using the same pen throughout. I am also loving the Pilot Prera for general handwriting!
- Added a white ink pen to my kit.
- Decided to revisit Noodlers Bulletproof Ink in a Noodlers Konrad Pen… more about this later.
AND… some big news….
I have been asked by Goulet Pens to be a guest on Brian’s Q&A next week – wow! super excited!
We are both serious about fountain pens (ie. seriously obsessive about them!) and if Tuesday’s test skype chat is anything to go by it will be a LOT of fun! I can’t wait!
So, let me know if you have any questions that you would like us to discuss.
