Page of Shame February 26, 2017

What is a Page of Shame… it is a page filled with pens currently inked. 32… yes, a sizable number. These are all pens I have in rotation at the moment, especially with InCoWriMo2017 going on. I must be honest and tell you that there are four fude pens inked, which I have not included on this page. Purely for aesthetics.

  1. Awesome Janine .
    Just really like the script and your collection of pens is great . I am trying to do your script but not getting anywhere near yours . Great keep the posts coming


    1. Hi Julian, thank you so much for your kind words! Just remember to derive from your natural hand, also with this architect script. That way it stays yours and you will be able to make small changes that fit your natural hand. Have a great Sunday!


  2. I have 10 inked right now, including a Pilot Varsity which I don’t feel should really count… This is a ‘binge’ for InCoWriMo. Usually I’d try and stick to a few less, though I’m enjoying the options now.
    I love to see your huge page full of colour though, so no judging from me! 😀


  3. I only have 7 inked right now, but I’m having to stop myself from inking a few more. I love all of your big ol’ fat nibs! No EFs here!


    1. Yes, Krista, mostly ceiling brushes in my stash… I just got some Preppies in EF, F and M and I have a Pilot Prera Fine on the way from Japan. For giving a full scope when ink testing and because I was very impressed with a Kakuno and Metropolitan I tried at a pen meet. I saw this bright hot pink Prera and had to get that. 😃


  4. Hi Janine! I encountered your site casually and when i landed on this page I’ve smiled becaus I’m using the same number of inked fountain pens rotating them like you … everyone has his own character and none are the same. It’s really a pleasure to use all them. The great difference is that I use a significant lesser number of inks, but leave ve some time …
    My best compliments for your beautiful and interesting website. Cheers.


    1. Thank you for your kind words and appreciation, Guido. I’ve always “struggled” to try and keep my number of inked pens down, but if you have them, why ever not use them? That would be such a waste.
      Enjoy your pens and inks!
