RIP, C-4 italics nib, you have served me well.

In case you wondered, I am ANGRY with the tilde there. (Or flourish, or whatever it is), because !@##% that's exactly the best stroke that the nib can make and it can be done beautifully, but of course I've overloaded the pen there with ink, haven't I? Oh yes, and now it's a stumpy weird mark. *impotent flail*


I am muffled today in real-life (owing to a cold and having lost my voice) and so in compensation I have swung into answering support requests WITH A VENGEANCE and so on. Because I can actually articulate myself there.

Having no expertise in the matter, I think it looks lovely. <3

Thank you! I can see all the flaws, but I'm glad it's not blazingly visible :P
