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.

Welcome to our little corner of the universe from a pen user in San Diego. I grew up in Pueblo, Co but that was many, many years ago!

Hello and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa.

To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!

Welcome back !


The artist will appreciate that the LAMY Safari nib can be removed easily, and replaced by one of several different nibs. Don't be timid about trying them. Neither be timid about writing larger. Play music (Telstar / The Big Country) and see what it does to your handwriting.


Write with joy.

Hello and welcome back. Have you ever been to the Colorado Pen Show? I hear it is small but that it is growing in popularity.

Welcome back. I envy your ability to draw. My guess is that bird is a wren -- shorter tail -- in front of a large blooming flower, perhaps on an opuntia cactus or a prickly-pear cactus, so maybe a desert wren (the southern version of a winter wren) or a rock wren.


Again, welcome back to the Fountain Pen Network!

Thanks for the welcome back. I have been thoroughly enjoying my pen and honestly, as an artist, it's the inks. It's always going to be about the inks for me. So, expect weird inky-thoughts. ;)


I do have a small writing sample I'll post on another thread.


@estie1948: Correct, just a little House Wren. Unknown flower as it was more of a....graphic space-filler.

@esterbrook: I have not! Tell me more!

@Herrjaeger: Mmhmm. I band birds so a fluffed up HOWR is a delight to behold.

@Sasha Royale: Yep. Wren. Eh.... we'll see. I do like the swappability of the Lamy nibs so that's exciting!

@OCart: Eh, the location services picked out the nearest town... I'm actually in the Greenhorn Mountains!

@Jar: Wrens. Love em.
