Red Ripple Waterman's 52

Here is a pen post! This is one of my fountain pens from Greg Minuskin - A hard-to-find restored vintage Waterman's 52. The nib size is a fine, however it can do pretty thin lines with minimal pressure. As for flex, it's not a wet noodle. But it feels just right for drawing - not too hard and not too soft. Filled with Private Reserve Ebony blue ink.

May sketchbook - Part 2

Vintage Eversharp Skyline

Trying out different kinds of line. Top one was a loose line. Bottom one had a more angular line. I like the stylised feel of the bottom one. Top one just looked messy.

Noodlers Ahab modified. I made this suit for Ollie's fabric man out of a toilet roll. She kept pulling the man out.

New dining table ceiling lamp installed at my in-laws. It looks futuristic.
Muji 0.7gel pen + photoshop. Practicing a more angular line.

Vintage Mabie Todd Swan. You have to insert the broom stick though the hole in the basket.

End May-June 2015 sketchbook - part 3

More pages from that sketchbook. Too busy to scan them all at once. And I lost track on which fountain pens I used for these. It could have been a Nakaya Long Cigar, G-nib and watercolours. Photoshop was used to get the flat colours.
