Having recently purchased my first noodler's fountain pen (and blogged about it here) I am excited to take on the challenge of Inktober: 31 days - 31 ink drawings in the month of October.
Inktober was created by Jake Parker http://mrjakeparker.com/ (aka agent 44)

My Tools for #Inktober
|My inking tools|
It is the most beautiful black when you compare it to other inks, I just really need an ink that dries faster and is waterproof (like Lexington grey). So I will adjust my sketching style to accommodate the ink's properties and see what happens?
FYI: On the naming of the noodler ink: ""A large Northern Raven – solitary and mysterious as is its nature, unlike crows – from an old 19th century painting – seemed the perfect label for a deeper mystery than the louder 1930s style. Only Mr. Poe and that bird would be worthy – and thus the darkest vintage period style ink that Noodler’s could make became “The Raven”
