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

Posted by DebbieOhi , in Illustrated Journal, Uncategorized 06 March 2018 · 2,157 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.

Need Advice: Leaky Fingers From My Noodler's Ahab?

Posted by DebbieOhi , in Illustrated Journal 23 December 2017 · 3,364 views

Hi all,
 
I'm giving my Noodler's Ahab another go. I like the bit of flex it gives, and I don't have to worry about springing the nib (I do have nicer pens now, so am aware of the difference).
 
BUT it always ALWAYS leaks on my middle finger (see photo). I've tried adding silicone grease to the bit where the body connects with the writing bit.
 
Any other advice?
 
Thanks kindly!
 
p.s. For the drawing above, I used Noodler's Black Swan In Australian Roses, one of my new favourite inks.

My husband gave me a bunch of ink samples from Goulet Pens for my birthday earlier this year, and I'm still working my way through them. Today: Noodler's Apache Sunset. Wow, LOVE the shading.

Trying Montblanc Lavender Purple In My Edison Nouveau Premiere Seaglass

Posted by DebbieOhi , in Illustrated Journal 24 June 2017 · 2,709 views

Inked up my Edison Nouveau Premiere Seaglass (a gift from my husband Jeff) with some new ink I acquired from my fountain pen enabler friend, mishie. Used a water brush to smear the ink around a bit.
 
This is my first Mont Blanc ink, and I'm fascinated by the bottle shape. Does anyone know if this shape customized for Mont Blanc pens? Or just for an interesting design?
 
Anyway, it's a beautiful colour and I'd like to try this in one of my pens with a broader nib to see how it shades.

Trying Out Sailor Jentle Sky High & Reconnecting With My Noodler's Ahab

Posted by DebbieOhi , in Illustrated Journal 24 June 2017 · 1,506 views

Inked up my Noodler's Ahab with the new Sailor's Jentle Sky High ink I recently acquired from mishie (aka Fountain Pen Obsession Enabler). When I first bought my Ahab from Wonder Pens, I confess I was not enamoured because the nib required too much fiddling (I had been warned about the Ahab but I still wanted to try it). So I de-inked & cleaned it, set it aside for several months. Took it out yesterday to try again...and LO AND BEHOLD, I love it. It takes more pressure than my beloved Pilot Falcon to get line variation, but I don't have to be quite as paranoid about bending the nib. I also really like my Sky High ink. Some lovely shading.
p.s. And yes, I WANT TO READ ALL THE BOOKS.

Doodling With An Inky Blotch With My New Edison Nouveau Premiere!

Fountain pen artplay this morning. Whilst inking up my new Edison Nouveau Premiere Seaglass pen (a gift from my husband) with some Private Reserve Arabian Rose, I accidentally made an ink blotch. I decided to doodle with the blotch, of course. :-) . I love my new pen!!!

Thank You, Ralfstc!

Thanks SO much to ralfstc, who sent me this pen, which I LOVE: from researching online, I believe it's a Waterman's 352 Stalwart, made in Canada in the 1940's. According to ralfstc, the nib was modified by John Sorowka (Oxonian).
 
Ralf sent me this pen in thanks for a fountain pen drawing I sent him which was in thanks for the sample of Lamy Dark Lilac he sent me. :-)
 
I love fountain pen people!
 
It's my first Waterman and also my first pen with an ink sac - I had to look up online how to use it! Any advice/tips re: maintenance welcome. :-)
 
And again, THANK YOU, RALFSTC! So looking forward to writing with my new pen. I've inked it up with Iroshizuku Kon Peki.
