This is the only one I've done so far. The ovals are a bit out of control lol. I'm looking forward to learning more about signature writing at advanced spencerian saga this year!

Looks great @Raayynuh. I wish I could attend the Saga too, but teachers only get the summer off for calligraphy camp fun. I will have to live vicariously through you.

Here is my Bloser. I haven't really wrote much OP, or Spence this summer. I have be focusing on Italian hand since June.

Hi Himasf,
Infact today I was going through P.Z. Bloser's 'Lesson in Ornamental Penmanship' trying to understand.

This is an attempt at an early version of Lupfer's signature (c. 1912). I really like the construction of it and the balance. Some his later signatures are even more complex and difficult to write well, but very attractive. His off hand work was superb.

Hi @himasf
To answer your question it's everything from beginning. I am totally new to spencerian and wish to start learning. Right now I'm practising copperplate but parallely want to start this.

Thanks for asking and hope to get some guidance from you all.

I do realize I need to spend more time with my pen. It was fun to practice this one. L.M. Kelchner
