    Here are my three latest ones,




    All three are drawn in a Ranga 4C with a F-C steel nib ground to a needlepoint by Masuyama and Sheaffer Skrip Brown.

    Thank you! Glad you like em. The yellow pen is a Pelikan demonstrator with a custom-ground M400 nib, it is a needlepoint nib with a line weight of about .1 mm. The other pen is one of my vintage Montblanc 136s. It has one of the nicest nibs ever! A rare palladium nib in extra fine with tons of flex to it. It also retains all of its original gold "plating." I have seen a lot of the palladium nibs missing the gold masking, which was created by heating the nib to turn the palladium a gold tone. Lately these two pens have become my go-to pens for drawing. I also frequently use a Pelikan 400NN and M805 demo.

    I draw zentangles. Lately I've been using Spirograph with fountain pens. It's a bit of trial and error. But with all the ink colors the designs can pop.
