How is a comb pen like a wild mustang? Both are likely to throw you if you try to ride them! So we get up, dust ourselves off and try again. I’ll show you how I deal with this unruly pen to make outrageous, splattered, energetic letters. Nothing could be more fun! After that, we’ll look at my Handwritmic pen, which runs like a Ferrari. You need to keep your hands on the wheel here. I’ll give you a driving lesson but will not take responsibility for any accidents. After the lesson it will be up to you to put in the hours. These tools will not be tamed, but you can learn how to channel their energies.
