When I was at school, I used to end every school day with fountain pen ink all over my hands and face and down my shirt.
~Edgar Wright

Celebrating a month of ink today. Inktober, invented by Jake Parker, doesn't have a lot of rules. Just four, in fact:

There is something magical in seeing what you can do, what texture and tone and colour you can produce merely with a pen point and a bottle of ink.
~Ida Rentoul Outhwaite

I remember always being inky when I was in school, too - one school I attended required fountain pen use. My middle finger on my right hand was always blue.

I had that blue badge of ink myself...thanks for the memory. :-)

Fun post Tabatha, I like the inky quotes. Alas I didn't use a dip pen in school until I was in an art class in High School. Thanks for the link to my site!
