Since I was given my first pen and I’d purchased my first journal, it was time to buy some ink. I went to our local pen shop, Vanness. They were super nice! There were inks priced at $9, $15, and $30. I picked the $15 Diamine inks because I knew I would eventually want to get the whole rainbow, and the $9 inks weren’t available in all the colors. For my first purchase I chose Diamine Sunshine Yellow and Diamine Aqua Blue. (I like really bold, punchy colors but they have more subdued, refined choices too!)
Being interested in pens, for me, is about being able to make visual art with written words. If you needed any proof that this is possible, please check out King Blotto III.
