I'm experimenting with different styles of lettering for the
titles in my book. I've got calligraphy pens but I find that I'd
rather draw outlines of letterforms, then fill them in.
I started this morning using a dip pen for the outline then filled
in using a brush.
felt a little awkward so for the next I used a fountain
pen (this is an Art Pen, my Parker has just run out of
ink) for the outline and filled in with a black Tombow brush
Tombow is useful because I can fill in the main part of the letter
with the brush end of the pen, then finish off the bits I've missed
with the fine fibre tip at the other end of the pen.
