It's happened: Brad Dowdy from the Pen Addict has finally released his first ink collaboration with Robert Oster, and it's called Fire on Fire. As expected, people went nuts for it, myself included. Brad is a great guy, and definitely an "influencer" in the stationery market, so when he puts something like this out, people sit up and notice. It's a great color, so I've collected a few reviews from some of the best ink reviewers in the business. Plus a few other links, so here we go!

I love the way that Marlon James describes stopping everything to scribble something down. My pocket notebook habit has gotten so mechanical these days that sometimes I’m halfway through pulling the notebook out before I realize what I’m doing.


That's it for the week, should have a new series starting next week that I'm pretty excited for!
