Hmm. That’s what happens when I start learning broad pen – I try to construct cadels! It’s actually quite meditative.
Here’s my card and envelope design for the Flourishforum’s recent Colour Blue Exchange. I think most should have arrived by now!
A long overdue letter to a generous and wonderful new pen pal! Written with my newly acquired, sturdy Brandauer Times Pen no. 531.
Detail from an envelope for a dear old friend, as you can see I am working on a freehand version of Spencerian … and I found a way to write ‘ß’ that looks ok!
Here’s some outgoing mail to a sweet pen pal … still summerly themed, though it’s so grey today. Sorry about all the challenges, I just don’t have time for these at the moment!!
I bought a box of them (opened, but quite full) on EBay. They’re not exactly delicate, or fine, or very flexible, but I think I will definitely find some use for it!! And I have a feeling they will work on very difficult paper too. Brandauer Times Pen No. 531. And I’m tired, so good night to you all!
Wrapping up an ink sample for a colleague in graphic design and lettering – I hope it arrives safely!
