Here are a few more of my journal drawings. The second one was done with my new Lamy Joy calligraphy pen. I had heard a lot of great things about Lamy Safari fountain pens, but when I actually tried one out there was not enough variety in the quality of line for me. I was looking for something that could substitute my dip pens and that would be portable. While shopping for pens at Lee’s Art Shop in NYC the salesman mentioned calligraphy pens. I tried this one out and quickly realized that this is more like what I was looking for. I get a great variety of line and I can take the pen everywhere. I could do without the blue ink, especially since I would prefer something waterproof, which this isn’t. For some reason, this ink and the paper in the Moleskine sketchbook just don’t mix very well – I found myself going over things several times. I did, however LOVE the way it looked and felt when writing. I plan to buy some Noodler’s Bulletproof black ink, but for now I’m going to keep experimenting. So far, I would recommend this pen to anyone looking for a starter fountain pen.
