I was bored, so I drew and quickly lettered to see what combining a cartoon with copperplate would look like.

Like it! Nice rendition. Did you use the same pen for both? What pen?

Thanks! I used a regular No. 2 pencil to sketch, then inked the cartoon and letters with Higgins ink using a Nikko G nib in an oblique pen holder.

Very nice website on steel pens! As a self taught calligrapher in my third year, I can appreciate the work you've compiled. Wonderful!
