    Wink Warmest Greetings From Canada

    Hello all!

    My name is Danial. I have been a fountain pen enthusiast since high school art class and, despite my horrible cursive, write every day. My main go to pens are usually dip calligraphy pens or broad nib cartridge pens. Apart from writing I also enjoy pen and ink drawing using either dip mapping quill nibs or fine nib fountain pens.

    I decided track down some pen forums after recently being given a very high end Montegrappa pen. I don't plan on keeping it, but it got me thinking about the pen community and how I have never looked for others interested in pens, writing and drawing before. Pens have been a passion of mine for a long time, and I figured it was high time I had a community to engage with!

    I look forward to chatting with all of you and seeing you collections! I hope to run into some of you who have amazing cursive as well!

    Cheers!

    ~ Danial

    I already saw your Octopus drawing, amazing work!

    I hope you will enrich the Art and Calligraphy section with regular posts of your drawings. 👍

    Welcome to the Fountain Pen Geeks forum! However, wouldn't the warmest greetings come from somewhere like Death Valley, or equatorial Africa? Looking forward to your contributions.









    Regards,
    Jon
