Lot of IG members were also disappointed with the ads that bothered and been much more commercialised than before. But i think in a way if you restrict yourself to what you do and just be in that zone it wont harm much. Yes there are positives and negatives of social media and we have to choose wisely what we would want.

Thanks @Estefa for this lovely thread. :D

I would like to visit Toronto for sure and have a long longing to meet my mentor @Salman Khattak. If he wouldn't have supported me in my journey I wouldn't be what I'am today in Calligraphy. :D

Andrew, Thanks for sharing these awesome advts. The first ad reminds me of playing that game during my childhood. We used to puncture the ball and tie it to a bat. India never had these products.

Hi Diane,
I agree with Jean. During my Art college days we used to use local made brushes for work and they were dirt cheap. As you progress you can always buy the more professional ones.

Warm welcome Crane :D
Spencerian is a good way to start. Also you can experiment parallelly with different scripts to know what you like the most.
Sometimes doing them practically will give you a better idea.

Feel free to ask if you have any doubts.

Hi Gil,

Welcome to FF. And the post written in chinese is so good. Wonder the pen's nib is bent down for any specific reason?
So what do you want to start with... since you have mentioned cursive writing you can start with Business penmanship and move to spencerian and so on.

Dont hesitate to ask if you have any doubt.
