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.
0.18 rotring pens rock. Everything drawn and written with it always looks ‘just so’.
oh yes. i’m just not liking the paper in this journal because it absorbs the ink in a way which makes it ‘bleed’. i am excited about the red ink though!
