Welcome to the THIRD edition of Monthly Inked! Started from when I began working from home during lockdown and turned into a fun habit of giving my pens some much-needed love throughout the year as well as a chance to use my amassed collection of inks. Every month, I pick a new pen and ink pairing. Two pens and two inks to use for work. The primary for regular note taking and drawing while the secondary stands as a highlight/accent colour. If I’ve done a review for the pen, then there will be a link to the review as well.
Thanks again for joining along. The page gets updated monthly with each rotation and remains pinned at the top of the blog!

Update: I have since abandoned the Fluo and filled up Sooty ink in my new Tom’s Studio Spark pen. I tried to give the Fluo a second chance after not enjoying the experience the first time, but it simply does not write or draw well and it just makes me frustrated to use.
