New Eyes, New Pen! (Pilot Custom 823 With Fa Nib)

Apologies for the dearth of entries this past year. Many reasons, but double eye surgery was one of them. If you want to know more, here's my blog post.
Many out-of-town trips (mostly work but some personal) combined with work deadlines resulted in my poor pens (and snailmail correspondences) being neglected. I just recently was able to do a proper pen cleaning and have started catching up on snailmail again.
And one of the pens I'm finally able to use is my Pilot Custom 823 with FA nib, acquired earlier this year from my pen enabler friend, mishiechau. I LOVE THIS PEN SO MUCH. I'll post more when I have time. Anyone else love this pen?
You can see a stream-of-consciousness doodle I did last night on Instagram.

Trying Out My New Monteverde Giant Sequoia (Thanks, Pen Chalet!)

Posted by DebbieOhi , in Illustrated Journal, Uncategorized 06 March 2018 · 2,976 views

Pen Chalet kindly sent me a Monteverde Giant Sequoia. It is gorgeous, and I immediately had to ink it up with some Robert Oster Caffé Crema for a quick doodle. I'll be posting a proper review once I've had a chance to try it out for a while. THANK YOU, PEN CHALET! I lovelovelove my new pen. It was easy to fill, started up with no problems, love how it doodles.

A couple of weeks ago, I posted on the forums saying that I was going to NYC for work but had a few extra hours to wander about, and asked if anyone had any suggestions about where I should go. Thanks to everyone who gave me advice! One of the places I visited was CW Pencils on 100 Forsyth St. ( https://cwpencils.com ).

It's a tiny shop but WOW, does it have a lot of different pencils!

I asked the clerk for advice and she put out a bunch of sample pencils for me to try as well as a test notebook. I ended up buying a lot of pencils I can't wait to start sketching with. My pencils at home are horrible and scratchy and I am going give them away as soon as I can.
