That is so awesome, Prasad! :) I hope you do more of these holders. So beautiful.

Erica, you are one lucky lady! :)

You know you're a (newbie) calligrapher when...

(1) You attend a calligraphy workshop, you introduce yourself by your IG name and not your real name.  (Because that's what you are known for.)

(2) Whenever a new nib comes in your IG feed, you instantly contact the seller and score about 5 of each of the nibs. Just to be sure you have enough supplies.

(3) If a new practice paper comes out, you also hoard them - despite having a ream of unused paper at your shelf, few more unused notebooks, a practice pad which are you only half way through it and notepads as gifts from your last birthday and Christmases two years ago.

(4) When you have to say "NO" to those who ask you if calligraphy will improve their (very) bad handwriting. And they walk away because they thought calligraphy will save them from all the nasty comments about their handwriting.

(5) In my case, in a month, its either I am at the airport once a week or attend a calligraphy workshop.

(6) When you keep a cigarette lighter at your bag, but you do not smoke. And when somebody asks why, you say, "because I have hobbies." This is in case you stumbled upon a new nib and want to try it out. Ummmm, using your saliva to clean in the nib in public is gross. Its meant for the safety and comfort of your homes.

(7) You do not have a make up kit, but have a portable calligraphy kit instead - with jars of ink, nib cases and rolled up holder case. :)

oh the workshops are not until may :) i'm nervous about the copperplate clinic because it was specified for those of who are familiar with calligraphy but i have until may to practice! by the way, what does ate mean in tagalog? does it mean aunt? i see a lot of people addressed as ate, such as ate gail. in indonesian aunt is tante and it is sometimes shortened to ate  ;)

Hi! Ate in Tagalog means Big Sister. :) Indonesian, Malaysian and Tagalog/ Filipino languages have a lot in common! :)

Happy inking everyone! :)

Hi! :)

Been lurking around the forum since July, but this time, I had the guts to sign up. :)

I am Dheng from the Philippines, a newbie callgrapher. I started out my journey when I received my first broad nibs from my boss last Christmas.

Juggling with job, planning my wedding and travels, I am became in love with calligraphy and now, practicing with pointed nibs since July. :)

Happy to be here and thank you for inspiring newbies like me!
