“7 year old AJ writing with a pen that was manufactured when her grandparents were children. Esterbrook J series.”
In a time where children are bombarded with a billion different distractions every day, it warms my heart to see this young girl patiently putting nib to paper.
Did you know that the famous Disney artist Carl Barks was an enthusiastic user of Esterbrook pens? He particularly used a Nº 356 model to ink and letter his famous Donald Duck comic-book pages. (Per Wiki)
“…I drew direct onto the drawing paper with a Scripto light blue pencil, and inked with a 356 Esterbrook pen. My wife inked the dialogue with an A-5 or B-6 Speedball, and blacked the solid areas with a #2 sable brush.”
