Ink Review: Octopus Write & Draw Inks Part 1

Today’s review is a bit different – I am showing the first half of the inks in this line rather than a more in-depth look. Vanness Pen Shop recently added a new ink manufacturer by the name of Octopus. Octopus has various lines of ink, one being the Write & Draw line which consists of 25 pigment inks.

Each of the inks in the Write & Draw line come in a 50mL glass bottle for $17.33, about $0.35 per mL.

The Write & Draw inks are all named for the color and an animal – none that match the usual color of the animal, however! Yellow Zebra, Brown Penguin, and Brown Colibri are up first.

Red Duck, Orange Skunk, and Pink Gazelle:

Pink Alpaca, Red Turtle, Pink Owl:

Violet Raccoon, Violet Bee, Violet Lion, and Blue Chameleon:
