One of these days, I'll lock myself in a room for a month and properly learn how to use a pointed pen without ruining everything around me with ink.
Until then, this Tombow'll do.

Hamrick, you are an animal!
beautiful, although i read "Cavender Fields" three times, and kept thinking "Whats Cavender? Sure is pretty whatever it is..."
would say more like brush-ickam script! ;)
but I think the pen gives more elegant hairlines than brush
Love your flow.
Btw, that's the hard version of the Tombow, right?
Should have tore it up with a Capital L, it's one of my favorite letters... also hit up those rhodia pads if you haven't already. They are great for when you want to use traditional pens.
Yup. read a cap C and not a lowercase L. The letterforms and thick/thins are beautiful though. I have the same pen, and can't duplicate that awesomeness.
I started with traditional nibs, it's a little bit of a learning curve, but totally worth the effort. For doodling (not necessarily lettering), give a g-pen a whirl. Bouncier than your average nib.
love the roughness of this. awesome
Looks rad, definitely also seeing Cavender.
I'm also really tempted with practicing with new brush pens, I'm more of a graphite and ballpoint pen sketcher/artist
Diggin this! that 'v' and 'r' are spot on. *goes off to practice*
@Ryan Hamrick you are seriously amazing. Love this. And you'll have no problem with pointed pen - seriously the same as brush lettering just have to get used to the difference in pressure and adjust the nib/medium for the writing surface. Thanks so much for the suggestion of brush tools - love them!

Do you start with a pencil sketch? What materials/equipment do you use?
Edit: and of course, now I'm reading your Medium post on tools, and feel like a dope :P
