    Inspired (?) by the Lobster from the main page's news, here's a fountain pen version of Mike Mignola's pulp hero, "Lobster Johnson".

    Very cool! Nice drawing John. Not familiar with the Lobster Johnson character, but your line and gestures are terrific. Love the walnut brown ink too! Been too swamped lately to draw. Looking forward to making some time tomorrow. Cheers!

    Great sketches. Thank you DGG, they are very enjoyable. Curiously, of all the sketches you've posted so far in this thread, I like the two drawn with Oblique nibs the best. Somehow, they feel more three-dimensional and inspire my imagination better.

    Keep them coming!

    Affirmative action decision today. Not exactly sure what it means, though. Basically, saying Texas needs to take a closer look. On the inky side of things. . . using a new ink I recently got called Shoreline Gold. It's a bit light, but flows nice, and I kinda like it.

    Pen: Lamy 27m
    Nib: Oblique Medium (Gold)

    Thanks John! Yes, lately all my drawings are an opportunity for me to reflect on some person in the day's news. Reflection through drawing, I guess. Edith Windsor was the appellee in the recent case decided by the US Supreme Court, US v. Windsor. It overturned the Defense of Marriage Act.

    Today, I'm thinking again about Mandela and decided to just write out this well known quote from his speech to the court facing the death penalty for "sabotage".

    Inspiring.

    And the hunt for Edward Snowden continues, creating some diplomatic and international tensions, to say the least.

    On the fountain pen side, using the silver cp1 today. Nib has a great flex, and this size of pen is really slim fitting in the hand. Except for the medium nib size (I prefer fine or oblique variations), it's of my favorites.

    Pen: Lamy cp1 (925 Sterling Silver model)
    Nib: Medium (Gold, platinum coated)

    Interesting to see the Sterling Silver version of the CP1.
    I have a Platinum where the Guilloche doesn't seem quite as sharply defined and it really shows up any fingerprints.
    Has a bit more heft than the Matt Black CP1.

    Thanks picautomaton and Bogon07. I'm slowly working through my Lamy collection as I do these daily sketches. Kind of fun.

    I believe the sterling silver cp1 came out just as the first cp1's were introduced in 1973. It's actually a bit slimmer than the more recent versions Lamy offers. This limits a bit because the standard Lamy converter will not fit. Yet, the T10 cartridges do. I have a couple of the converters that came with these slimmer models, but they are the bladder type and don't work that well IMO. Picked the silver cp1 up on ebay last year. Worth looking into one if you happen to see one available. Do hope to own the current platinum version at some point. Cheers!
