1.2 Mastering the Pen
I’ll cover the basic parts of the pen and show you how to dip it in the ink to avoid drips and spills. I’ll also show you how to hold it for Blackletter writing, and then we’ll play with different lines to get a feel for the nib.

I'm the full-time illustrator and author behind Studio MME Illustrations. After graduating from art school, I set out to make a living from my art. It took 5 years of hard work but I made it and now I'm sharing some of my knowledge with people like you. My recent collaborations include Google and Modcloth. When I'm not drawing, I can be found exploring state parks.
