Trying out ecto.

I don’t know why I even bother, actually. It’s not as if the world could use more ways for me to inflict my words upon it. Heaven knows I’ve done enough damage! Here, have a pretty picture instead:

This “lily” is one of a series of doodles in a Muji binder notebook. The ink is Caran d’Ache Grand Canyon, and the pen is a Mabie Todd Swan from the late 1800s, with an overfeed. It has one of the best nibs I own – expressive, flexible, delicate yet resilient. There’s a lot of waiting during shoots, and doodling is better than idling.
