Brush Calligraphy / Brush Letter, where to start?
« on: October 29, 2015, 09:48:52 PM »
I've been wanting to do some brush lettering, but am not quiet sure where to start. I was hoping to find some tutorial on how to do it with just a brush. But was overwhelmed by everything out there online, most of which was brush lettering with pens.

I tried to figure it out on my own, and it turned out much like some of the wonderful projects my son came home with in kindergarten.  :-\ Not quiet what I was going for.

Help would be much appreciated.  :)

Hi All. I'm Kartini and I'm super excited to be here.

I have never been part of any forum before. So I'm also a little nervous about how to navigate, reply, and contributing. But, really, really excited about it.

My calligraphy journey is fairly new. But I've always loved writing words. I can remember in high school I use to write random words on everything. In church on the bulletin, down the margin of my homework, any time I had paper and a pen. I loved writing letters and addressing all the Christmas card.(and it hasn't changed much since then. ;))

I've always wanted to learn calligraphy since forever, and finally took that first step. I just finished my first on-line calligraphy class from Melissa Esplin at, and have found I LOVE the pointed pen!!!!

I don't know very much about calligraphy and the different styles. I am excited about learning. Thanks for letting me be part of this forum. Can't wait to get started!
