Hi from Los Angeles!
« on: January 09, 2014, 03:56:15 AM »
Hi there!

My name's Joanna and I live in LA. I'm a web/graphic designer who fell in love with calligraphy last October. I have so much to learn and can't wait to dive in and make new friends along the way! I'm inspired daily through following other calligraphers on Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr and (what feels like) a thousand blogs that I frequent regularly or have stumbled upon the last few weeks.

I'm not much of a forum person but I'm trying to break out of that shell and throw myself into the whole community thing. Eek! I also post some of my work on Instagram and Tumblr and I'm open to any feedback you have! :)

Hi there Joanna!

Your work on IS is fab! I'm a total newbie so it's encouraging to see how far you've come in just a few months.  I'm from the UK so if you could send over some of your weather that would be lovely.

Have fun and I look forward to knowing you better :)

Hi Joanna,
LOVE your business name! Your illustration is so charming! Perfect combo for your lettering.

I know forums can be intimidating and strangely difficult to figure out initially! But you will find everyone here is very kind and we have all levels of calligraphy/lettering.

Looking forward to seeing more of your work! And welcome!
Warm Regards,
Erica

Hi Joanna!  I love your business name too!  You've got a really whimsical style and the name captures that.  Welcome!

Oh my gosh! I'm clearly not very good at this forum thing as I didn't realize that anyone replied to my intro until today! :o  (I'm on another forum where nobody commented on my introduction, so I thought this would be more of the same... but I'm so happy that it's not!!!)

Thank you so much for the kind greetings Roseann_G, Linda Y., NikkiB, Erica & FrenchBlue Joy! You sure know how to make a girl feel welcome.  :D

I'm 10 times more excited now to be a part of this group. Warm fuzzies all around!
