I Did It

I've been using Sakura Pigma Micron's for a long time. I've also used the Staedtler technical pens for drawing and occaisionally a dip pen, when doing writing on parchment. I've never actually used a rapidograph before, but just a few days ago I took the plunge and bought one. Koh-I-Noor has a little set with the pen and bottle of ink in a little case. Hobby Lobby had one on clearance sale for $9.

I love it!

Oh! I am so jealous......I still haven't found anyone that stocks the Kooh-I-Noor brand over here and I would love to buy a set. Maybe I'll just have to bite the bullet and buy one from Dick Blick....and pay a high price....gulp

They had a couple of others at the store here. If you want, I could pick one up for you and send it to you and you can send me a check or MO or something. At $9, how can you beat it?

Of course, I'm now south of you. I'm back in Columbus for a month and some.

Well, if you change your mind, I'm sure they still have one for another day or three. And the store here in Columbus is where I got it, just to clear that up.

Looking forward to something from the radio graph.

Hmmm, you've got the gear head's attention. What car show? he he he...To give you an idea on how much I love my Merc. I spent father's day making new flamed door panels for it.

BTW Jinn, I haven't forgotten the promise of a print of my Gnome Home drawing. Just haven't gotten huevos enough to create a print for you yet.

Actually, the past couple of months has been hell. Thanks to the job I took, which I'm no longer at, I didn't even make it to the car show.

And I promise, you'll see some work from the pens soon.
