Creative Words, Schaefer Pen
For a creative exercise I cut out a bunch of magazine words and phrases, and glued them on two sheets of drawing paper. They are for inspiration, thoughts to ponder, something to laugh about, and get the creative juices flowing. I got a new pen, with ink cartridges, the Schaefer calligraphy pen, I think I am already out of oink in one cartridge? It has a nice flow to it, but can scratch the paper, or not get enough ink out if you don't press hard enough. I also have a hard time with it because my signature is slanted backwards, and it is an awkward way to hold the pen for that. But it writes nicely, I just need to get used to it.
