This really has become quite addictive. I’m not sure if it’s actually the act of drawing that I’m liking or the act of buying and trying out new stationery. It’s rekindled that fascination I used to have at Uni were I would go and try out all the pens in the Union Shop (and then settle for the cheapest Bic one I could afford).

Currently I’m using a Dresden fine nibbed fountain pen and I’m loving it. I’ve been through a couple of pads but currently I’m finding 150gm cartridge paper is the best. No bleed and no leak through to the other side.

I’ve also been following the work of a chap on a YouTube channel called Peter Draws https://www.youtube.com/user/Palivizumab and his work is fantastic. I wish I could draw like he does. In the meantime, here’s a few of my recent attempts (all done with the same pen).

Enjoy!
