Re: kuretake fountain or disposable pen

Kaweco Sport Ink Roller Pen

Currently, mine has Platinum Carbon ink, which is a basically India ink without shellac or acrylic, and the pen-ink pai...

Re: Seattle, Washington, USA results

I love the range of sketches, from cartoony to real life studies, from pencil to ink to watercolors. Very nice! :clap:

I hope to make the 23rd Sketchcrawl (which would be my first).
