Archive for June, 2011

The June Carnival of Pen, Pencil and Paper is in swing at Note Booker, Esq. There are some really great posts this month. Sme of my favorites are:

Beyond the Pen: Fountain Pen Ink as Watercolor Wash posted by guest blogger Jamie Williams Grossman who has a sketching blog called Hudson Valley Sketches. She shares her techniques for creating washes out of saturated fountain pen inks and shares a list of her favorite inks.

Unquestionably The Coolest Notebook I’ve Ever Seen posted by Note Booker, Esq. introduces us to an exotic looking notebook purchased at Flax. The cover is part leather, part canvas and is filled with beautiful paper with a deckle edge.

Links to Artists Who Put Pens to Good Use posted by Inkophile who shares some great links to artistic journals and illustrations created with fountain pen ink.

Inside: A Ukrainian Sketchbook posted by Notebook Loves Pen shows us the inside of Ukranian artist’s Anna sketchbooks.

The Book Surgeon posted at Moleskinerie shows us some amazing examples of book art. Using knives, tweezers and surgical tools, he carves one page at a time, without adding anything but just cutting away some pieces of out-of-date encyclopedias, medical journals, illustration books, or dictionaries.

There are many more great posts, so be sure go visit Note Booker, Esq today. Submit your blog articles for the next edition of Carnival of Pen, Pencil and Paper using the carnival submission form.
