Ooh good one Linda! That was amazing!

I find him utterly fascinating and a pure genius. His About page is a must read: Jake Weidmann About.

Joy, he relates script calligraphy with a dip pen to ballet on paper!

Oh, and P.S. Is that how slow we are supposed to go?! Oopsie!  ;D

I remember watching the video of Debi Zeinert - only today did I notice that she's a leftie! Wow.

And Erica, your lightning fast calligraphy is amazing to me!


Here's a great one on Seb Lester, who is a UK-based calligrapher and type designer. His work is brilliant.

And here is one by Luca Barcellona, who is based in Italy. I think he's about the same age as Jake Weidmann. He came to LA to teach last year but sadly I was not able to attend.

Love this idea! I'm adding John DeCollibus's "Dueling Pens", which someone had mentioned in a post was worth taking a look at:

I am always mesmerized watching Mr. Edward Curran from England write.  It's simply beautiful.  And just look at his flourishes.   

There are three videos listed in the middle of the page.

Erica,
Thank you for posting that lovely video of Carol DuBosch.  I attended a workshop in October and I was able to meet her.  She is very warm and gracious. 

Love,
Roseann
