@cygnoir I have to ask, how does one store all these inks? I picture a desk covered in bottles and splashes of ink, with miscellaneous pens and craft materials laying around. Or do you have some nifty organizational case or cabinet for your inks?

@cygnoir I love eye-popping orange inks! Especially on cloudy days.

@cygnoir Bold colour! You’d think they would’ve called it Clementine or something.

@kimberlyhirsh I like orange but I don't know that I'd think to write with it. Maybe as a highlighter?

@timapple One day I will have an apothecary-style cabinet. Right now I have a small antique sideboard with two big drawers that hold all of my inks.

@pimoore Clementine is a better name for it, or as a Scottish friend pointed out, Irn Bru. 😂

@cygnoir I could imagine it being useful if you did illuminated calligraphy.

@cygnoir, congrats on your new IndieWeb wiki template. I'm glad to have another pen/ink enthusiast tinkering around in the space. In case you missed it, I've been experimenting with handwriting and the web over the last month. Here's a summary: Handwriting my Website with a Digital Amanuensis. 🖋 (original reply)

@mbkriegh I’m glad you can see that from my quick snap! I really should be taking higher-quality photos of Inkvent.
