Kurtake Pen Drawings

For my nightly drawings I’ve been trying out the Kurtake pen with Sumi-e Ink on Borden & Riley #234 Bleedproof paper for pens and I love it!  Not quite like any other pen.  Not quite like any other brush.

Makes for very expressive lines and mark making.  I’ll definitely be playing with these some more.

This last one is a fine example of what happens mid-drawing when you fall asleep with the pen still in your hand!

Trish has a gazillion little papers to piece. It looks like she’s doing origami but she swears it’ll be a baby quilt!

Trish has a special little case there with more feet than I’ve ever seen in one place for her machine!
