Fountain pens are not just for writing with - we also use them for doodling, sketching, colouring-in, and all kinds of art-making. Chuck, Brian, Melissa and Diana discuss their own (mostly modest) creative attempts, while Diana sits down with the illustrious Liz Steel to chat about the urban sketching movement, working in line and wash, and why she loves sketching with fountain pens.
The Nib Section is the official podcast of Fountain Pens Oceania.
