Because Pants Don't Expand (that much)

Because pants don't expand that much... A flaw I've often realised when seeing Hulk movies. But now I realise why they let that element slide!

Darth Robbery (true tale!!! sort of)

I've been using fountain pen's of late for inking. Being new to these old school weapons, I needed something to practise on. That's when I was shown this bizarre event!

So, with a little twist and a load of ink bleeds, pen stoppages and four different ink trials! Here is my little take on events. Thanks for looking.

The Shadow (quick sketch)

Little quick sketch of the Shadow. Did it to help finish off a dying brush pen (R.I.P) Taken on I-Phone with Instagram. Liking this Instagram, very handy for sketch book work.

Fountain Pen (testing)

Having spent the last few months using Sable Brushes and Brush pens. I'm now trying out a Namiki Falcon fountain pen and apart from finding the right type of ink, I have love using pen. I think it has also confirmed for me that I am a pen man. I have loved using a brush and there is a real magic that happens when you use one. But, using a flex nib, just makes me feel that my art work is being expressed in a more honest manor. I will still be using a brush within my work, but it will not be the main stay of it.

This particular image was done with the Namiki. It's only a few centimeters high and it was a little difficult using a medium nib at such a small size. So, I can see my credit card taking the hit for the purchase of an extra fine nib...(brace yourself Mr Credit Card)
