Throwback: Well Inked Box – Kurt (Feb 2018)


In March 2018 I became an ambassador for Well Inked Box, a quarterly subscription box which features creative supplies delivered to your door. I was so excited to receive my first box and I shared the unboxing on my Instagram stories (see highlights).

At the time I was on a portrait drawing kick, so I was super excited to test out all of the goodies – particularly those Tombow pens! The pens are still working a year later and they are now my go-to black pens.

I used the Alex Foster Space notebook for the portraits below:

The notebook had an interesting glossy texture which I’d never come across before and the pages were a little thin for my usual heavy mixed media pages, so I ended up doubling up the pages and reinforcing with a pamphlet stitch so it wouldn’t fall apart. I really liked how it turned out and the cover is by far one of my favorites!

I completed the Space journal in November 2018: view the entire Space journal.
