yakun coffeeshop sunday afternoon.

New zig writer pen + watercolour. The ink was waterproof so i could lay watercolour on top without it smudging. Plus the pen has some thick and thin variation depending on pressure. It's just not refillable like a fountain pen. (At least i don't know what ink to refill it with if I dismantle it.)

this happened last week
