OOO, I do love Ebony Purple, but that's black purple not really an aubergine.  I think of Aubergine as purple burgundy.

 

If you want a FAB ink, try the Stipula Purple IG, it's on sale for 1/2 off (I think I bought it at Pen Chalet).  It has been a wonderful performer. That being said, I really like both the De Atrementis and Rohrer and Klingner aubergines.

 

Sadly, the Stipula inks are prohibitively expensive in the UK. But I was grateful for the recommendation, as it sounds right up my alley!

AidenMark - I love your comparisons with the drawings!

Most kind. They are certainly a triumph of enthusiasm over talent. 

BTW the Aubergine quote is from the book "Soul Food" by the multi-talented Shelia Ferguson, she of the 70s hitmakers The 3 Degrees. Her book is wonderful and deserves to be better known.
