"We have to continually be jumping off cliffs
and developing our wings on the way down."
~ Kurt Vonnegut

5x8" watercolor moleskine, PITT pen, Gellyrolls, Rapidograph w/J. Herbin Ink

This drawing reminds me of a fortune teller with a sort of celestial feel. This one was magical and fun to draw! I love it. It was drawn in pitt pen (XS) and Rapidograph technical pen with .35 nib and J. Herbin Rose Cyclamin fountain pen ink.

I finally bought myself some gelly rolls! Now, I've got to find the neon ones! Very cool mandala. You do such beautiful work!

oh, beautiful! I have that very ink, I only use it sporadically because it's so bright when used for actual writing. I'll have to try it for drawing instead. I've also never tried putting it in a technical pen - what a great idea!

*Eden, Gelly rolls = wonderfulness. And by the way, you have inspired me to start displaying my art around the house (although I am having trouble deciding what/where/how). Congrats on the new pens.

*Chaotic Beauty, Sometimes the mandalas surprise me, especially when I try something new and it works. I have been doing more mandalas with a square feel. It adds a new element.

*Sophie, Before I used fountain pen ink in the rapidograph, I contacted an ink store and determined it was safe. Couldn't find a definitive answer on the web. I look forward to seeing what you create!
