    If I only had better handwriting, it wouldn't feel like I'm molesting my moleskine notebooks whilst writing in them. You on the other hand, you needn't worry.

    Wow man. Your work is great. I like your ink drawings, and your watercolors (though I could never do that). I am inspired to start my own Moleskine sketchbook. I appreciate your addiction too. I'm on my way.

    Copy + Waste — But molesting the skines is the fun part!

    What kind of black pen do you use for drawing? I've been looking for a decent pen for ages, can't find any that I like.

    Hey C+W — I use all kinds. Not too picky. Even ballpoint (because you can get darker or lighter lines depending on pressure). I've been working digital a lot lately, so when I do draw with a pen lately, it is whatever is on hand. I like uniballs. Also Microns can be nice. I was recently given a Waterman rollerball, which is nice for writing, though I'm finding as the ink runs down it is beginning to skip a little. Sometimes I will use Rapidographs, though they are definitely an acquired taste. The black pen pictured here is actually a brush pen made by Kuretake, using a Lamy insert and Rapidograph Ultradraw ink. I followed the recommendations here: www.sidewalkbubblegum.com/tutorial.html
    It's a nice tool. The brush tip will eventually wear out, but you can replace it for less than 10 dollars, I believe. Other than that, I recommend straight-up ink and brush. Windsor Newton Series 7 #2 Brush is often recommended and is good. Speedball is a good brand for ink, I believe.

    Then there is the option of the traditional dip pen. Lauded by old school cartoonists, but confounding to many — myself included.

    Unfortunately, you cannot go by one artist's recommendation. When it comes to pens, to each their own. You have to try all kinds. They have different merits and drawbacks. Also, consider how the material you're drawing on plays a role in the tool's performance.

    I have begun my own Moleskine sketchbook as predicted. I'll post some photos soon. Thanks for the inspiration and encouragement.

    On checking the statistics for offenses committed under the influence of drug and alcohol abuse in Texas, it is seen that most of these people are of the age group of 18 to 25 years. This means that there is a large number of youth that are into substance abuse in Texas and these are proving to be a threat to the stability of the state as well.

    These are amazing. They also put my moleskin collection to shame as all of mine are filled with lists and no pictures :(
