Still Playing With Pens
I am still playing with pens and looking for rhythm and flow in letter forms. I find that letters with the most visual interest happen while writing very fast with no plans or layouts to follow. Of the 40 different pens I practice with, some nibs glide over the paper and others require hand pressure to flex the nib. This sample was created with a semi flex stiff nib from a early 1900's Swan eyedropper.
