    Re-Hello From Colorado

    Hi folks, um, yeah. I joined in 2014 but....left but now I'm back. The name is Weavrr/Weavercat/Liz. I graduated in 2016 with a BFA in Fine Art (Painting/Printmaking) and a minor in Biology. I started out here as primarily a dip pen, brushpen, and drafting pencil user. Which is awesome. However. A longtime aquaintence of mine recently confessed their love for fountain pens and under their guidance I finally made my first starter pen purchase. I purchased a Lamy Safari-F (because my handwriting is tight and cramped) in that LE color: Petrol Whoops. I think I love this. Well, except for the cartridge it came with. It's nice but it feels too light/bright in a blue (which I figured on so I went and spent a penny on R&K's Alt-Goldgrun and a converter because wow) and yeah. And here I thought my dip-nib addiction was bad, this is going to get me into all sorts of trouble. I feel pretty darncool right now writing up my fishing-notes with a 'fancy' pen. Even more so when I'm writing up notes for my Dungeons & Dragons campaign. BAH, all my old posts are gone. I did a review of the Baron Fig kickstarter 'Confidant 1' back in 2015. I would totally share my writing sample but see, I decided to be a bit profane... but polite. So, no sample of my polite profanity. Instead, a sample of the artwork I make with my brushes and dip-nibs in old-old Higgins Black Magic.
  2. Let us start with a little bit of a look-see at this idea of a sketchbook/notebook 'Made for Creatives'. Baron Fig wants a book that isn't expensive like a Moleskine and has more useable space (don't you just hate losing the image where the page bends?), and just... is a book for ideas. So, there was a Kickstarter and their goal of $15K was met and exceeded and by the end of their fundraising, they had $168k+. That's a big deal. Anyway, as an incentive to donate more they had various goal levels and one level was to get a one (1) Baron Fig Confidant book in either: Blank (I have this)Dotted (kinda wish I'd chosen this too)Grid After 3 months of waiting, my sketchbook/notebook arrived and wow. It's cute. It came in a pretty box with a nice little letter about how the designs are not set in stone and stuff. What I like: The cloth cover. Oh my gosh it’s not much but it’s so much less slippery to handle. The size, it’s roughly 5 1/2” x 8 3/4” and it’s small but it is good. They’re like chunky little sketchbooks.Spine actually does lay flat but mine creaked… ominously.Number of pages and signatures. 12 signatures of pages. WOW! In this little book, wow!Off-white paper. It’s not day-glow white and it’ll look nice with rich browns I think. What I’m not keen on (yet): The punch-holes for holding the signatures together. Aesthetically, eh… but I’m getting used to it. First impressions of paper: It looks thin and I’m not sure how it will hold up to ink. What it looks like (the cover is a soft grey): More in the post below this. [Edit: I forgot about that form! Oops. Anyway, as this was a spurn of the moment thing for art/sketching and the lack of information on the actual paper-used... we'll just ignore that Paper Review form for the moment.]
