Hello everyone,

 

I'm Felipe, a commercial diver based out of CA. I've always been fascinated by fountain pens, quills, and the decorative writing.

 

I've been writing for awhile, i seem to have my own style when it comes to lettering, although it seems to follow copperplate quite a bit.

 

A buddy of mine turned me to this network and told me it would be a wonderful place to learn information and even get some penpals. 

 

I look forward to everything there is to learn on here and I can't wait to put all that knowledge to good use.  :D

Welcome. You can find a ton of useful information here, but beware the effects on your wallet. I had much more disposable income before coming here. :^)

 

You should try to hit up a pen show. You missed the big one in LA this year, but there is one at the end of August in the San Francisco area.


If you want less blah, blah, blah and more pictures, follow me on Instagram!

Thank you, Zaddick! I'll be hopefully working for a new company in the Bay area, so I'll be able to go to the show!

Hi Felipe, :W2FPN:

Hello! I see you're also a wet shaving enthusiast as myself? Is that image a rendition of an open-comb gillette? :]

Hey dude, I know you're going to enjoy it here! Might even get me back into it more!

If you do get up here to NorCal, drop me a line, I'll buy you a shot of tequila!
Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.

Welcome! There used to be some great pen stores in LA when I loved there throughout the '90s. How plentiful are the pen shops now?

Regards,
John
