I’m slowly, (very slowly) trying to get back into the habit of drawing. Drawing takes a fair bit of concentration in a way that knitting a sock doesn’t. So I’m going back to basics and just drawing what’s nearby – in this case, a fairly new pen I’ve been using.
I use a Lamy Safari filled with Platinum Carbon Black ink for all of my sketches. It’s my favorite ink to use when I know I’m going to be doing a watercolor wash – I find it to be the most waterproof. However, this mean the Lamy is always filled with black ink so I’m ready to draw whenever I’ve got the energy and inclination.
I received the Diamine Inkvent calendar as a gift last year and had been wanting to try out all of the different inks in my planner, so back in February I picked up the Twsbi to try. So far it is easy to clean and low maintenance – absolute requirements for me. I also enjoy that it doesn’t need a converter and I can see the color of the ink in the pen since I’m switching colors every month.
