Greetings From Oslo, Norway

Hello, and a belated Happy New Year to you all.


I'm a 30 year old librarian living in the Norwegian capital. My father passed away recently, and I inherited his artist-supplies, including nibs, inks, papers, fountain pens and a lot of things I don't know what is. Though he gave me a caligraphy set when I was younger, he never spoke about his tools with me, and I never saw him use them. Since his passing, I have started getting acquainted with his things, and the Fountain Pen Network has been invaluable in understanding how things work. Though I'm used to writing as a hobby, most of the nibs seem adapted to drawing, and I'm surprised to learn I like to draw (which I haven't done in adult life). Now that I have become obsessed with the whole deal, I thought I'd join, and not just stalk the forum.


Thank you for having me :)

Thank you for the warm welcome :)


I haven't been drawing since I was a child, and so my drawings are crude and there's a bunch of basic principles I think I'll need to take a class to learn. But interest is a good place to start:

Welcome and Happy New Year !


Thank you for sharing your artwork. I look forward seeing more.

My sympathies to you and your family for the loss of your father. I think it is beautiful that you have taken up his passion of paper and ink. You do your father true honor.


Write with joy.

Hello and welcome. :)

Sorry about your father, but hopefully using his tools will only create nice memories from now on. :)
