Late last year, Nano came over to be with his sister Duende. He had no clothes. And then when he finally obtained said pieces of stitched-together fabric, they came in the shape of a mint-green terry cloth bird suit. So Nano decided to find an ink bottle to sit on. Here he is, perched on Caran d’Ache Amazon, a vivid green ink from the Colors of the Earth series.
One of the most appropriate actions to take with ink is to put it in a pen. At first, Nano looked down on Conway Stewart Dinkies. “Pah,” he grumbled, “these are mere colorful toothpicks, able only to hold a smudge of ink!” He changed his mind later on when he realized how striking they looked in pictures.
Nano is a Pen Guardian and Consumptive Poet, and he takes his vocation quite seriously. Even in a bird suit.
