Elegant Bleeding

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. 

  
This is the 3.0mm nib.
 

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. 

  
I don’t think I’ll forget it any time soon!

  1. 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.
