I started this idea last week when I was writing letters with a new nib for my dip pen. I was keeping a list of what worked and what didn’t, and I thought this would be good for an outline for an essay or project.
The pen in this drawing is modelled from my own pen, which uses a plain old black plastic Speedball holder. I feel, like I do with fountain pens, that manufacturers could do so much more to decorate these holders with colours and designs, so I took liberties with the colour. The nib is a J.B. Mallat and I wrote on the “stationery” with that particular nib in my dip pen.
My dip pen, which is boring black plastic, instead of pink and blue with dots……
