April Ink Drop Reveal: Rain, Rain, Go Away!

Art work generously supplied by Thomas Jones


Get your umbrella out! This month is a wet one here in Virginia. Don’t let rainy days get you down, especially when they are helping the flowers come up. There really is no better day to break out your favorite pens and do a little writing!

Rain can symbolize sadness, heaven’s tears if you will. But it can also serve as an emblem of renewal, cleansing, and forgiveness. Whether it’s raining cats and dogs where you are or you are having to do a rain dance to get a single drop, April’s Ink Drop is sure to bring a down pouring of inspiration! 

Here are the inks for Rain, Rain, Go Away:

    I sure hope so, Scott! It's another dreary day here. At least everything is green! 🙂

  • What does a snowman eat for breakfast? Snowflakes! …that one cracks my son up every time.

  • There really isn't a lot of B-size notebooks around, I don't know of a single B4 one. The only A4 journal I have is the Leuchtturm Master, and the paper in that is pretty okay, not mind-blowing though. It is 100g so you won't have ghosting like the Tomoe River, though it can bleed with some pen/ink combos. I know there are other A4 journals out there, but not easily found in the US with the brands I stock.

  • Thomas Jones: Amazing art!

    I'm really loving this month's ink drop. I'm a dark and dreary midnight weary kind of guy, so I'm really enjoying them. My one caveat is, and I have tried various colors/shades of grey, but the grey's I have tried coming out of any of my fountain pens just don't do it for me. I know there is a grey out there that I will love but it needs to be an almost black grey with funnel clouds spouting down and sucking my house up into the storm kind of grey (I do own a bottle of Stormy Grey, but I'm looking for a grey without the gold flakes).

    That being said I'm in Southern California, and live right down the street more or less (less than 2 miles) from the beach and my biggest complaint this year is that some days have been just too hot and sunny, save the heat for summer! So if anyone has any excess of rain and dark clouds send it our way please!

    Another great Ink Drop. Have a great day all!

    Thomas: great use of the ink drop colors. very creative.

    The new office is nice and very 'corporate' the old office with all the stuff on the wall, imho, was more convivial. What the significance of the drawing below the robot. the one with the Army medic? I don't believe I saw that in the old office. Glad to hear business is so good that you have to move into a smaller office.

    So here are ink and nib questions for you. Any thought as to carrying Ackkerman Ink?
    In one of your old videos you talk about swapping nibs in the Jinhao pens and mention that an Edison nib would work as well as a Goulet nibs (have 1 and LOVE it) but you never mention it again. It doesn't look like it possible. If it is HOW?

    I love the B5 size too and the only one I've found, so far is the Maruman Report Pad. Wonderful paper. pretty inexpensive. I paid under $4 at at local retailer for 50 sheets and its not too transparent to write on both sides. I'm not into the whole journal thing like you and David.

  • Over here in Montreal it's only been cold after cold after cold… we've had like two days that were warmer than 5°C so far xD

  • SJ Kissell

    That's terrible Brian. I've had bronchitis and pneumonia several times and it never gets easier, and with the kids sick and no doubt cranky I imagine it is just awful. Please don't come back to work too early; I've tried it and all it does is make the pneumonia hang on even longer.

  • Madigan

    Hey Greg! Thomas did a great job using all the colors. 🙂

  • Madigan

    Hey Amaryllis! I can only imagine… I don't envy you the cold. Hopefully it will warm up soon! 🙂

  • Ooo cool thank you Madigan for the grey recommendations. I will definitely try them out. Sending sunny weather your way.

  • Well it's going better these days! We get 15°C with sun! 🙂

  • Jen

    Lovely artwork! I'm so envious of your staff's artistic skills

    I wouldn't bother you with spelling corrections but in author names they can help people searching. Crush It is by Gary Vaynerchuk, and the author of Measure Twice, Cut Once is Norm Abram. The authors of The Complete 101 Series (John C. Maxwell) and QBQ (John G. Miller) use their middle initials due to having common first and last names.

    This isn't criticism, just trying to help others. Great stuff in that list. I'll be looking at all the ones in your list I've not already read. Thanks for sharing!

    I just got my ink drop and…candidly, it was disappointing. Very little variation and almost depressing. I don't know about others, but rainy weather saturates colors for me, so I would have expected some dark greens and purples. Sorry, but none of the colors impressed me enough to buy them in quantity.
