When I'm ready for a break from dip pens and ink, I find that brush pens are fun, easy, and eminently portable. I used to use the old Zig markers, though they don't seem to be around anymore...but the Tombows seem to stay juicy longer anyway, and have a nice fine tip on the other end that's good for outlining. I've used them for all kinds of signage. This one was an idea for a Western-themed fundraiser logo.
As a professional lettering artist, I relish the variety of projects, venues, styles and media I experience every day. From commercial chalkboards, to illuminated manuscripts, to events providing onsite personalization with calligraphy and engraving, I enjoy bringing beauty to the world, one letter at a time!
"Mil Plumas" is Spanish for "a thousand pens" or "a thousand quills", and is also a nod to my late grandmother who was a writer named, oddly enough, Mildred Pluma.
