Hello from Bogota
« on: August 30, 2021, 06:30:13 PM »
Hello to you all, and thank you for letting me join this forum.

I'm Rubén, from Bogotá (Colombia), and I've recently become interested in calligraphy. While searching for information and communities I found this forum, and am glad to be here.

Just a few days ago I bought mi first fountain pen ever (a 2mm broad) and I've practiced some italic. But I am already gathering information on other kinds of scripts to learn in the future after I improve in italic.

Hope to learn from you, and to be inspired by your works.

Kind regards,

Ruben M.

ˇBienvenidos, @Ruben77 !

I started learning calligraphy about a year and a half ago but just found this forum recently.  There is so much information and knowledge on this forum.  I have often spent way too much time, digging through some of the older posts.  It's so much fun, but not very good for my productivity but I'm learning a lot.
