More Whiteboard Writing (2008)
Another example of calligraphic scribbling I sometimes do for fun, again with two whiteboard markers banded together, and in the Italic style. Horizontal strokes have been rendered a bit too thick because my penhold was wrong — the ‘nib’ should be held 45 degrees to the writing line, but this was closer to 60 degrees.
Incidentally, the Admiral Vernon is a covered market that forms part of Portobello Road Market in London, which I used to visit on Saturdays when I was a student at Cambridge, and a fountain pen collector.
