On why she took part in Inktober this year, Alexandra says:
"I had attempted to participate in Inktober a few years back but due to a terrible car accident I was in, it was simply too much for me to physically and emotionally keep up with. This year, my husband, who's a full-time professional graphic designer (doing art on the side) had mentioned he'd read a recent article on Inktober and asked if I'd heard about it...and I said yes! We both knew of a fellow artist who has been using dip pens for quite some time who wrote a blog post on what materials she uses to draw and one section talked about dip pens - with her favorite being the Leonardt 256 Drawing Nib. After reading her post, I ventured out online to begin my own research as to who/where I could obtain my own drawing dip pens/nibs and landed on the Manuscript Pen Company website!"
