Plain Ol’ Pen and Ink . . .

11/7/14 Pilot Iroshizuku Take-sumi ink, Canson XL 140 lb. paper
In honor of worldwide Fountain Pen Day, I used my favorite Sailors to sketch a few patrons this morning at Zoka Coffee. As much as I enjoy experimenting with all kinds of colorful media and trying unusual writing instruments like twigs, sometimes the elegant simplicity of plain ol’ pen and ink are all I need to keep me happy. . .

Happy Fountain Pen Day!
