I finished one of my sketchbooks yesterday. So last night I visited the stationary store which I had previously bought this particular sketchbook from. Of course, they didn’t have it anymore, so I ended up buying a Derwent journal because the idea of it being a ‘perfect travel companion’ appealed to me. And now that I have a traveling journal, maybe I will travel more often. Buying a completely new type of book felt like I needed a new pen. So I ended up buying two Rotring Isographs, one with a .25 mm nib and the other-hold your breath-a .18 mm nib. I also thought: why not go all out and buy some red ink. You can’t imagine my excitement as I left the store with a new treasure in my bag.
