My partner in being a law abiding citizen bought me some roses yesterday, so here they are along with Inktober day 18; some slowly improving hand anatomy.
I found this album while packing up at my Dad's for his move. It's a scrapbook with many examples of calligraphy from the 1880's. There are a few letters and practice sheets. There are also advertisements from a person who you could hire to write letters on your behalf or make you a name plate in this very formal and very flourish-y script. I can show some details if you'd like to see. How fun to think what has happened since these were written in the 1860's!
Day 18 of #rockyourhandwriting is songs that give you all the feels. Though there are a million to choose from, I chose three - Beethoven’s Symphony #7, 2nd movement, Pyramid Song by Radiohead, and, in honour of Gord Downie’s passing, Nautical Disaster by The Tragically Hip. All three are important songs to me! What are your favourite songs?

今朝の #コーヒー は於大さんから頂いたモンブランのインクをお試ししつつ。ちょっと特別な感じの赤紫で良い感じです。一緒に来たわんこもかわいいです。ありがとうございました。#coffee #fountainpen #handwriting #万年筆 #インク沼
Homo Sapiens fountain pen is one of our iconic creations. Here's a beautiful shot of Homo Sapiens London Fog from @bwhighlife

Here are the tools I’ve been using for my Inktober posts! I’ve been inking mostly with my trusty Microns, but I’ve also been incorporating some fountain pen work with my Kakuno pen. The colored lines on day 10 were done with Papermate flair pens. I’ve been inking them on my Maruman New Soho series sketchbook, which is PERFECT for inking on. I think it’s my new favorite paper. ✨ #inktober2017 #inktober #marumanpaper #micron #micronpen #sakuramicron #papermateflair #papermate #sketchbook #sketchpad #art #art🎨 #pens #pen #penandink #penandpaper #pencils #behindthescenes #artsupplies #artist #artistsofinstagram #artistsoninstagram #kakuno #kakunofountainpen #fountainpen
Inktober day 18
Okapi and African daisy #31familiars
Today came out relatively better than I expected. A simpler work, but I think it came out ok. I struggled to think of a way to properly differentiate African daisies from standard ones without adding colour to the picture.

A snake, frog and a slug meet a fountain pen... The tiny print was just recently re-printed at the Tokyo based Mokuhankan studio of an old Meiji-era woodblock. I unfortunately do not know more about its history or the story behind the motif. But it's a perfect background for the exquisite Nakaya nib. The old meets the new.
