Nina Johansson  Because drawing is good for you.

For all you fude nib fountain pen afficionados out there, check out this cool modification that you can do with a Lamy Safari nib (in this case an EF nib). Works great, and feels good to know that there are reasonably priced replacement nibs for these pens, so not too risky to play around with.
Don't ask me how to do it. Instead, google "Lamy Fude mod" and you will find Daniel Novotny's excellent tutorial. A big thank you to @ateliernovotny for this, I would never have thought of it. 😊

Enough. "Skröna" ("Tall tale"), the graphite filled accordion sketchbook, is finished. Now off it goes to an exhibition. Swipe to see some more samples.

I've noticed that my hand makes protest twitches when drawing this kind of tiny details, putting marks where there shouldn't be any. I hate it. But I think the result might be cool. Or not. Time will tell.

Lunch sketching at the old substation in Eskilstuna. I love that huge leaning tree behind the building, I wonder if it would fall if the building wasn't there?

Moving along in the long, hopefully soon finished, accordion sketchbook.

Saturday. Perfect day for drawing tiny maps and such.

Couldn't resist this fabulous angle to draw people from. Looks relaxing down there.

Lunch sketching in Eskilstuna again. Trying to get the hang of my green Sailor Fude de Mannen pens. A tad unpredictable, draw and re-draw seems to be the trick.

Spent a few hours at GĂ€rdesloppet today (vintage car race and concours de charme) with a couple of other urban sketchers. An R4 with a caravan, in the midst of the blazing sun, was too tempting not to draw. Guess I'll see the result of the sun tomorrow. 🙄
