I was cleaning out my sketch bag when I found a pen in one of the pockets… totally forgotten. I also forgot how much I enjoyed working with it for fast sketching. It’s Speedball’s felt-tipped calligraphy pen, the Elegant Writer.
I don’t know if you can purchase them separately but I bought a set of four at my local art supply store. There are two 2.0mm Fine pens, one 2.5mm Medium pen and one 3.0mm Bold pen.
It has a lovely chiseled tip which gives great line variation.
And the bleeding! Did I mention the bleeding?!?
The black ink bleeds into gorgeous pink, blue and purple when hit with water.
Isn’t it fun when you find a lost friend. What a nice color when it bleeds. I love Calligraphy markers. Your post reminded me that I have 3 Sanford 2.5 Calligraphy markers. They have to be at least 12 years old and the still work. I should play with them.
