Show & Tell / "Solitude" poem in Engrosser's script
« on: March 01, 2018, 01:42:08 PM »
This piece has made me grow so much as a calligrapher. It is both the largest I’ve written Engrosser’s script and the smallest! The x-height on “Solitude” is a half inch and I did the weights in two strokes. The x-height in the poem is 1/16th of an inch.

Introductions / Hello from San Francisco!

I am an illustrator currently living in San Francisco. As a creative I am always looking for new skills that will help me be a better illustrator. I picked up pointed pen calligraphy about 6 months ago to increase my pen control and to increase my comfort in ink. What started as a side project to improve my illustration abilities has turned into a great love! My day doesn't feel complete anymore if I haven't picked up my oblique pen.

I am so excited to join a community of calligraphers of all levels!

Here is a sample of a my work. A birthday card I sent out this week to my mother-in-law.
