Howdy from Houston!
« on: March 13, 2015, 12:58:45 PM »
Good afternoon all  I'm Gibby.

I've had an infatuation with calligraphy and lettering for as long as I can remember. I am in no way a calligrapher myself, but I have interesting handwriting and I love to draw and I practice lettering in one form or another almost everyday. I'm always looking for inspiration and this seemed like a fabulous place to find some.

Thanks!

Thanks all! I didn't realize there were so many Houstonians around these boards such a nice surprise. It already feels more like home.  :)

Sarah Foutz I will hopefully be posting some of my handwriting in the Kindly Critique area very soon. I'm rather interested to see what the posters around here will say about my magpie style and can hopefully give me some advice on where to go next.

Thanks again!
Gibby

Hey, Gibby!  Welcome!  I'm a Texan, too, but I'm way up in the Panhandle. I make my wat down to Houston often, though!   I'm glad you found FF!
