Walt Whitman Leaves Of Grass - Organics Studio



visvamitra

Recommended Posts

Well, I like earthy green-brown colors. I was sure I would like this ink in the moment I first saw a swab somewhere in internet. It took me quite some time to get a sample and it didn't disappoint me. The color is quite ubique and it blends green, brown and yellow in a unique way.

 

I was disappointed by many Organics Studio inks but this one rocks.

 

Take a look:

The name Leaves of Grass is inspired by Walt Whitman's book Leaves of Grass. I've decided to write few verses of Leaves of Grass with Leaves of Grass. Surprising, isn't i?

Very nice review. I like the chromatography you added to the review. I'm not sure I'm ready for such a sober green-brown. Maybe by December this colour group will appeal more.

The praise of the praiseworthy is above all rewards.

NIce! Some great pictures. The chromatography reminds me of medieval pictures of comets. Have you ever played with Stipula Moss Green (Moschiato, sometimes called "musk" which is not a color but a smell, but this is a different rant altogether...)? It is a color that can be brown or green, or both, depending on the pen you use. Flows well and has good dry time, too. Although you might find it bright, Rohrer and Klingner's ALt-Goldgrun is an ink that is seemingly different with every pen it goes in. Green. Golden green. Yellow. Brownish. A fun ink for sure.

 

Thanks for sharing the review.

Some people say they march to a different drummer. Me? I hear bagpipes.

Great review. I have this ink and I like it. Don't assume that it will be a dark green, because I agree that it's a murky color. Often doesn't appear green at all.

I feel like I know exactly what to expect of an ink having seen one of your reviews.

 

I doff my hat in your general direction.

I bought this ink just for the name (a sample). I LOVE it. I will likely go for a bottle soon. And the name, perhaps my most admired American poet in English (can one count Auden as American?), just adds to my attraction.

Thamks a lot again Visamitra for your stunning work of this stunning ink :thumbup:

 

I thought your work should be honorourd....

 

So I did in My review of J Herbin Vert d'Olive,in which I honour American poet Walt Whitman, Austrian writer Stefan Zweig and Polish ink connaiseur VIsamitra

Ha! I was thinking both these things while reading this review. I love the Stipula green and use it often.

 

Thank you for the wonderful review, Visamitra! I love seeing the splashes so very much. :)

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
    • Arkanabar
      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
