Another Day Searching for the Ultimate Pen
I have been searching for the ultimate pen for B/W script lettering a long time. Today I found one that is nearly perfect for my handwriting style. The pen is a PITT artist pen with a bold tip. It has the flex of an antique fountain pen that produces a large thick to super fine stroke weight. Previously I tried the PITT big brush pen and I was not able to hold a super fine line with the tip. The PITT bold tip is truly amazing for an affordale writing instrument.
This script sample was produced from 3 quick writing exercises with the PITT bold tip. The version on the right was scanned, imported as a template and refined in Illustrator.
