@alexwi Well done! :thumbup:

 

I was going to draw that topic myself, although the pelican's predicament would be different. Given the The Pelikan's Perch article mentioned the purported short supply of raw materials, I was going to have the pelican looking at a largely dried up environment with few fish left to eat, and about to eject a brick with accompanying internal grumbling.

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct for valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

Thank you!

 

Now, to answer your comment, your artistic abilities, as we have all seen and enjoyed, are clearly sufficient to make a stick figure of such depth. Me? I'll "stick" to simpler forms.

Now that just makes me think of a poor pelikan getting a reaming from a swallow.

:lol:  (But I'm going to count it as a good thing from my day, and not go looking for ills - they make themselves obvious enough without me trying to focus on them. :) )

I don't know which is more depressing - that I remember those, or that it took me a moment to realize I remember those... :)

I remember this one. It was posted outside a lecture hall. We had a professor of pathology who had this effect.

And from a thread today:

PS: That was Robert Oster Bronze, but obviously the lighting + camera turned it into some other color. :( I made no effort to correct it.  Murky greens are disliked by every digitization process I know.  (Maruman Mnemosyne paper, Kaweco Sport, f)

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now.

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
