A few days ago someone over at artistry put up an activity "challenge" on their facebook page to do a sketch with a ball point pen, the idea being to completely use up all the ink on a single sketch. These are fun sorts of activities occasionally put out there these days when we are sort of hunkered down in our homes so I decided to give it a shot. Took me a whole day just to find a ball point pen at all. I ended up finding two and only one that I could get to work.
To be fair, I think I am cheating a little since this is one of those pens that one of those promotional material companies used to send to me with my company name on it as a sample. I have always suspected that these come with a less than full load of ink. Still it took a couple hours to run it dry.
