  • Aurora Blue ink reviewAurora Blue ink review
    Aurora Blue is a nice fairly saturated blue ink. There’s nothing that sets it apart from most other blue inks as far as colour goes but it’s good and wet and stands out well on the page. Here I am doodling the Inkling. Thank you to The Writing Desk for sending me this sample to review. You ...
  • Kutsuwa Stad Sharpest Compass reviewKutsuwa Stad Sharpest Compass review

Sometimes they pretty much draw themselves. Irene is my favourite Inkling so far. But who were her visitors??? Would you like your very own Inklings and also support this site? Look here!
