Time flies, before we know it, November is gone! On the first day of December, I did three sketches with different formats. They are:

1. Hero M86 with Noodler's ink on 305x229mm (12"X9") 300gsm (140lbs) watercolour paper.
2. Hero M86 with Noodler's ink on 130x130mm (5"x5") Muji Sketchbook
3. Bamboo dip pen with Hero ink on 400x200mm (8"x6") 300gsm (140lbs) watercolour paper.

As the manifesto of USK says "We show the world one drawing at a time", I choose to post here with the first drawing that I did on the first day of a new month. On the left is the photo of the third drawing which is also a new experiment. It is the first time that I used the bamboo dip pen with Hero ink which is not waterproof. It was lots of fun and I will try the bamboo dip pen with a smaller nib next time.

You can see my other sketches on my blog or flickr.
