Pen and ink today

I did calligraphy when I was younger and have the dip pens, books and layout paper ready to get into it again, it's on my USS list,  but I hadn't thought of using it for drawing.  This work is in black permanent ink, both as a line and as a wash, and I love the uneven line the dip pen gives.  I really liked this graphic style, and again I have no idea why it's turned sideways.  One thing difficult to get used to was the strength of the ink, but I'll get there, I'm happy with the drawing
