by Rebecca Stadlen
New York Fashion Week is finally over and for those who aren’t heading to Europe for the London, Paris, and Milan collections (major FOMO), it’s back to the office we go. And so, even though the first of September typically marks “back to school” for most of the world, today is when the fashion set officially returns to their desks. To help make the retreat slightly less ominous, Vogue.com asked five illustrators who know a little something about working with a pencil and paper to let us inside their workspaces…. read more »

Just wanted to share this interesting Sonar video, which is like a beautiful mix of raindrops and fireworks dancing around within the length of their sound waves. We also couldn’t help but notice that the color palette resembled our fave notebooks of Rhodia, Whitelines, and Moleskine. How serendipitous!

RhodiaDrive featured this Blackwing enthusiast’s snapshot of his Blackwing 602 pencil during the index card stages of writing his manuscript. We’ve never seen a Blackwing nib this low, but we completely understand! If we could jot the picture : you fall in love with Blackwing, the mighty pencils bring your dreams to life on exquisite paper (like Rhodia), all the while performing brilliantly, even down to their ferrules – of course want to keep them around for as long as you can! We paper geeks at European Paper absolutely know the love you feel.

“I use my Blackwings for writing my manuscripts. I write all of my manuscripts on standard sized index cards in pencil [...] The pencil in the photo was sharpened with a box cutter towards the end, and believe it or not I actually used it until it was unsharpenable.”
