Hello from the piedmont region of South Carolina, where this afternoon we had several tornado warnings, but no tornados. I've been a handweaver for 45+ years, and recently started making handbound blank journals as a way of using up some of my stash of handwoven fabrics on the covers. Then I began drawing in the journals, and bought a few fountain pens, and started collecting interesting inks to draw with, and one thing led to another. . . My favorite writing pens are my Lamys, but I just got a Creaper with flexible nib for drawing. I like to use Noodler's Lexington Gray for line drawings, and sometimes I do watercolor washes over the line work. Now all I need is a few more hours in the day so that I don't have to steal time from the weaving to give to the fountain pens. Here's a page from my current sketchbook with my Creaper and Noodler's Nightshade ink. This was sketched in an old cemetery while traveling in Massachusetts last month.
