Fountain Pen Ink

  • My love of broad nib calligraphy begin with a love of fountain pens. If you have never tried fountain pen inks, I highly, highly recommend that you look into these. There are so many options, many with unique, beautiful, and seemingly magical properties. Here are some of my favorites:

Accessories

  • Elgato Stream Deckthis is one of my absolute favorite tools and I honestly don’t know how I lived without one before I got my first one. I use this to trigger shortcuts in my favorite programs so that I don’t have to remember them, but it can do much more as it integrates with several platforms.

Camera Equipment

  • Canon M50 Mirrorless Camera MKII – I love this camera. The quick review: it’s small, light, convenient and great for capturing video of yourself of your work
  • Canon M6 MKII – if you can afford an increase in price this camera has a few additional features (uncropped 4k video, 120fps 1080p video). It’s just as portable as the M50 but unfortunately does lose the articulating viewfinder.
  • Manfrotto Tripod – Select the “4-Section Aluminum Body” option on the product page for an excellent and MUCH cheaper option than the default carbon fiber version
