Introductions / Hello from NYC!
« on: August 23, 2017, 12:20:06 PM »
Hello everyone! I started studying calligraphy about a year and half ago, and thought it was high time I joined this forum :)

I've worked in a number of design fields throughout my life (theatre, film/tv, windows, events, graphics, etc.), and one thing I've experienced is that all of these industries have moved further and further away from things created by the hand. There's a lot of great advantages gained by the digital/technological advances of course, but it's also given me a deeper appreciation (and need!) for something like calligraphy that takes real time and offers something a machine never can.

So far, I've only studied pointed pen hands, but am looking to start broad edge next year. I am thinking to start with Foundational, then move onto Italic and so on, but if anyone has any suggestions or input on this, I'd really appreciate it! I'm lucky to live in an area that has classes, though Foundational isn't always on offer, so I might start with Italic?

Anyway, looking forward to being a part of this community here! Thank you for reading!
