Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome

Today I bought my first Pentel Pocket Brush Pen, with a little trepidation. I've tried using various kinds of synthetic or high-tech(ish) drawing implements before with mixed results. However, with the brush pen, I think I've found something useful at last. While not quite as versatile as an old-school pen or brush, it combines the two well, and seems to produce an interesting range of marks & strokes. Its one big advantage over a regular brush is that I don't have to constantly stop drawing to dip the tip of the brush into the ink pot. This speeds things up considerably...more to follow...
