You read it right. Fountain pens for doodling is a new art form. There was an era, where fountain pens were the preferred instrument for writing world over. A fountain pen was the medium to express, be it a poem or a love letter. It was a medium to communicate. From drafting letters to notices. From drafts to legal documents. Then there was a period when the fountain pen was left to the mere use of signatures.
Now, in the second decade of the 21st century, the fountain pen has found new meaning and use. Little did anybody guess that fountain pens one day would be used to create art and sketches. With the wide variety of inks available today creating art with pen & ink is picking up as a great hobby. There are 100’s of ink shades from various brands. Various ink types are available like Shimmer inks, Sheen inks, Permanent inks, Glow inks, Luminous inks, etc etc etc.
