I have a love affair with crow quill pens. The finest nib… #102. with its barrel shaft, it holds ink longer than any other point–no dipping in and out in and out. Gives you time to enter what you’re working on. Delicate, flexible–draw dynamic lines… from the finest to bold, spattering static electric stutters.
Once, the instrument of choice for cartoonists. Can’t imagine Walt Kelly’s Pogo…or Bill Watterson of Calvin and Hobbes, without a crow quill nib in their pen holder. Been nothing to compare with the quality of their drawings in cartoons since cartoonists went digital.
Stippling is mediation for me.
Who else out there loves the crow quill?
