This is my entry for the 2011 Noodler’s Ink Competition.  I only found out about it a week ago, just in the nick of time.

I don’t usually enter contests.  However…… I love Noodler’s Ink and I love the Noodler’s pens I have tried.  The prize for winning is one of every pen they make.  I do want to win so that I can test every single one of the Noodler’s pens.  I thought a squiggle drawing would show the ability of the Noodler Fountain Pen to satisfy my demands as an artist using continuous line in a manner quite different from writing and caligraphy.
