Coffee & Nib-bles / Share your milestones!

Hi everyone!

I think there was an old thread like this somewhere (maybe I even opened it ...) but I can't find it.
SO ... what recent calligra-milestones have you reached?

I'm proud to share my latest achievement: I can now listen to music WITH LYRICS while writing simple repetitive lines. YAY!! Before today, I made mistakes all the time when writing and listening to something with lyrics, so doing client work while listening was out of the question. But now ... ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED!!

How about you?

That is stunning! Do you have more of his work?

Niiice! Looks like real calligraphy to me!

I recently watched Crimson Peak and when the protagonist wrote something with a penholder and nib I was looking very closely to see what nib she was using. I thiiink it was a modern Hiro one though! :o

Have you tried only PX and liquid gum arabic? That might work.

Could you show a picture of the writing and what the nib looks like when you dip it into ink?

Maybe ask in the museum?

@katerina I bought it in a store but they also have it on Amazon.

Hi friends,

I found this:, it's an initiative to leave art for random people to find, then tag and share it. What do you think? I'm definitely gonna join, it sounds like great fun to just brighten up a stranger's day. If you join too, let's post our submissions here as well!

Very well done! I'd like to hear some more insight on the programming aspect of it, if you'd like to share :)
