Hi everyone!

i just got my delivery of Ahab Flex Pens from Goulet Pens and I gotta say they are AWESOME to draw with.
I highly recommend them. I made a quick post on my blog with some sketches:

Thanks V!
I used Noodler's Habenero and Black in those sketches.

I read Moby Dick last year... I was transported back to the dramatic bits by your drawings...

You're right Blue... I call it "that new Noodler's smell".
The resin odor does diminish after a while though.

Thanks for the kind words about my work!

Seriously nice work! It's nice to see some great art done with these. You should forward some to Nathan at Noodler's and see what he thinks, I think he'll be impressed!

Thanks Spit!
Nathan is one of my favorite people that I've never met!
Maybe I'll fire off some images to him sometime. Great idea.

I appreciate the kind words!
