ahh i just noticed the cork nibs with ink! Very cool. Do you use cork often for designing or specifically because you are designing a wine label?

it depends on what typeface you want to create . . .
for example - you can't create copperplate with cork nibs:-))) cork nib has far different characteristics from oblique nibs...

very cool! I love the gradient in the stroke and the cork lines. I wonder how hard it would be to duplicate a similar effect in illustrator...

never tried on anythig digital:-))))
a few calligraphers around me use tablets and they influenced me to buy one - probably one of the wcaom cintiq family + 6D art pen in addition

ahh i had a tablet... I need another. I just seldom used it to make it worth my while, but then again when i do need it there really is no replacement.

Do you have a website with your work?
