I meant to post this on New Year’s Day but I left the lettering in my scanner at work and forgot to scan it. I found it this morning. The sentiment remains true and any day can be the first chapter of your new year.
This was drawn with a flexible nib dip pen in a Tachikawa wooden nib holder using Pelikan 4001 black ink on Borden & Riley 100R Rough Cotton Rag Marker Paper (which has been discontinued). I scanned it in black and white and colorized in Photoshop.
Beautiful things happen when pencil and ink are applied to paper — this is one of them. This is drawing from Luciano Luzano from a trip to Lisbon. Fabulous.
I kept going back to Present + Correct to admire this vintage advertising art of A.W. Faber pencils and chalks that I decided I needed to share it. The image is circa 1897. I love that the pencils were tied to cardstock to display them. Good way to display my vintage pencils?

I may have a less-than-loving relationship with the Pilot Varisty pen but my friend Flora loves hers so much she drew a darling picture of it.

I couldn’t pass up this darling illustration of a redhead reading with a pencil at the ready. Wish it was for sale as a print. Would look lovely in my office.
