These picture's where done using Strathmore Bristol 300 series (vellum surface)
With the paper having a texture to it, it drags the ink from the pen beautifully and it then holds that line. The only down side, so far, is in the scanning of such paper.

I really like where this is going=Oh SHIT=I may fuck it up= SLOw down...
