Pen and Ink

    I really love Pen and Ink. I collect pens. My current favorite is Pilot. I don't like signing my art all the time because many drawings can be seen from all directions. Am I the only person who does not like to sign my art?

      A pen collector.  Interesting.

      I would like to be able to draw, paint, sketch.  But that's not one of my talents.  Lovely avatar, btw.

        'Talent' doesn't come into play.  Its like learning to ride a bicycle.  One doesn't start out competing in the Tour de France.

        First, one needs to learn the basics pedaling a tricycle.  One advances from there. 

        Drawing, painting and sketching is no different from anything else.  There's a learning curve.  smile

        A good teaching website, no charge, is wetcanvas.com .  Some areas are open while others require a person to register.

      Oh my gosh! Hello! I'm a huge Pilot fan. I can currently only write and illustrate with a Techpoint V7 pen. I've done some really cool and big stuff with these pens. When I say big, I mean 70x100 cm detailed drawings big_smile
      I don't sign my drawings either, well at least not in the front.

    Welcome to HubPages!

    And, just to let you know, I don't want to sign your art either. But, to each their own.

    I'm not an artist and do not draw either. However, I do put my name on most of the things I write. It could be considered a signature.

    If you don't want to, then don't. Choice is yours. wink

    Thanks. I will sign if asked apparently. I sold a drawing a month ago and let the buyer choose where. smile

    I use cheap gel ink pens mostly as they are dispensable and easily disposable and great for fast sketching over a pencil drawing.

    I steal pens wherever I am. Yours sounds nice, keep it safe, I may call around!
