    Default No Reindeers were inked

    ... in the production of this Christmas e-card:



    Which started as this sketch:



    Using an old pen that I picked because the colors reminded me of a Christmas tree

    I also love the ink which is Akkerman Garuda Rood, probably my new favorite for dusty red color.

    And finally, Merry Christmas to all who celebrate!

    Right? It's a big pen also, 5-1/4 inches capped with nice girth.

    Merry Christmas Will! Thanks for all of your pen sketches throughout the year.
    "What are moon-letters?" asked the hobbit full of excitement. He loved maps, as I have told you before; and he also loved runes and letters, and cunning handwriting, though when he wrote himself it was a bit thin and spidery.

    I have seen photos of a car showroom in Helmsdale, where we used to live. The petrol pumps were right on the sidewalk. I don't know what the pedestrians did when a car was filling up! This was as late as the fifties.

    I don't have any Akkerman Garuda Rood I'm afraid.

    I agree it looks a good contender as a dusty brick red

    For those who subscribe to the view that Akkerman inks are mainly relabelled Diamine, this FPN post from a few years back compares Garuda Rood to Monaco Red
