Greetings from Adelaide, Australia
« on: January 09, 2015, 07:15:46 PM »
Greetings all,

My names Jason and I'm an engineering drafter by trade here in Australia. My artistic background is quite limited but I've always enjoyed the beauty in calligraphy and handwritten scripts.

In my current profession, with everything done on computers these days, I've recently become disheartened at the poor level of penmanship throughout the industry. This initially sparked an interest in pens and penmanship, then a journey to improve my own penmanship about six months ago.

Regards,
Jason

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome.

Do we have many other Aussies floating around on this site?

I've seen a few here and there - I know one of my calligraphy friends (and inspirations? friendspirations?) njac does some lurking here. I don't think there are as many as I could wish .__.

There is always a few lurking in the background. I've have to keep an eye out.

Hi Brad, I'm also in the civil engineering field. I basically float between civil engineering, civil design and civil drafting in my role. Quite diverse but it keeps me on my toes.

Cool I also did pipelines (natural Gas) too for a while. It was much easier (drafting and designing). Hopefully soon I will start back into civil just waiting on them to buy a freaking computer for me to work on. Anyways good luck with your calligraphy journey.
