Yesterday while in the city I went by Cheap Joes to pick up a new journal and some ink for my dip pen. It's been years since I've drawn or written with it, so I dug out my nibs this morning and just had a blast. I've got nice black splotchy fingers now and 3 or 4 pages of fun drawings. I have had trouble with my regular pens as I am kinda hard on the tips. My heavy handedness is wearing them out . So the dip pen will be fun to play with .Off to meet my mom for breakfast.
