It's Madness But It's Fun
« on: November 06, 2021, 10:25:10 AM »
I believe that we should all be having fun with our calligraphy regardless of the style(s) we choose to study. This is just a mad but fun piece for a challenge elsewhere.....just don't forget to have some fun in among all the discipline.

@RoughDiamond

Nicely done.

Yes, it's important to have fun along the way--easy to forget amid these challenging times--as it provides a cushion for the unexpected hard times.

What is the challenge of which you speak (if it can be shared)?

Thank you and as I say...it's a bit of fun.

The challenge was set by Ashok Giri (who I know is on this forum) in the FaceBook group "Copperplate Script For All". Erica is also a member there. The challenge was set for a bit of fun.

In that group I have just done a post which recommends Erica's forum as a place to visit but @Erica, if I've broken any of your rules with this reply I apologise and please delete it. :)

@RoughDiamond
I see. Yes, Ashok is well known here. Very talented.
I'll have to pass on this challenge, as I have no facebook, instagram, twitter, etc. accounts, but will post a fun thing here bye and bye, perhaps in this thread.
I'm sure Erica would be fine with posting a reference to FF on Facebook. Might even get a few of the curious to post here.

@RoughDiamond I instantly recognized that beautiful ChicOblique Curv-E, having recently acquired that exact English yew and ebony wood model! We must have similar wood/design aesthetics.  Now, if only I could get mine to perform as remarkably as yours ...  ;D
