Pen & Ink: Dip Pen style

This past month, I've been taking my high school students into the land of black and white.  Because we are using old fashioned dip pens, the pen and ink technique is drawn out a bit longer.  While I do love the neatness and preciseness of a micron .01 pen, I cannot help but enjoy the expressive quality that line can take in using a dip pen.
