Gratitude Changes the Atmosphere

I just received a couple of brush pens for Christmas and today I gave them their pilot run. I think the things I'm having the hardest time with are:

(1) The sans serif font - it is evenly spaced when I sketch in in pencil, but the weighted strokes of the brush pen seem to throw it off and the letters lose their uniformity

(2) When I am applying significant pressure to the larger pen to get the heaviest downstrokes, the part of the tip that is marking the page isn't the tip (it is more the middle section of the felt, while the end of the tip actually comes up off the page), which results in the stroke appearing to the right of the sketched line - is this normal, or is there something amiss with the way I am holding it or the direction I am applying pressure?
