Sketchbook - new pens!!

I've been using Pitt Artist pens for several years now (see most sketchbook entries here), and thought them the best thing around. I've recently discovered the Pentel Pocket Brush, with it's long, flexible and very pressure-sensitive nib,  and have been blown away by the kind of detail it can give. I'm still feeling my way with these, but I like the early results - here's a quick sketch from an old newspaper of a (low caste) Dalit family, with a close-up on the fine lines of the central character's face.
