Seeking victims...err penpals...to inflict bad calligraphy upon
« on: February 17, 2017, 12:16:40 AM »
I would love to have some penpals to share my bad calligraphy with. I've always wanted to participate in one of the exchanges but can't seem to build up the necessary courage so I thought that maybe starting with very small steps, like having some penpals, would be a good start.

About me -

Calligraphy: I can sort of do an engrosser's script and spencerian hand. I really love all things calligraphy but am definitely more enthusiastic than talented. Let's see...I'm a pen nib geek. I also like experimenting making inks that never quite work correctly applied to paper but somehow always permanently stain or eat a hole through whatever they spill on.

Non calligraphy: Is there more to life than calligraphy?  ;)  I enjoy hiking in all weather, gardening (only really hardy plants that can survive benign neglect), and am a terrible cook.

If you'd like a pen pal too, have a high tolerance for poor penmanship and don't mind an occasional moth eaten looking letter with amazing fading ink send me a pm.

Hi! If you are still interested in a penpal, I think that would be fun and would help motivate me to practice more.
I started learning calligraphy last year around Mar/April, put it down for 8 months and recently picked it back up. I am still experimenting with different scripts, so I have no idea what would be coming your way.
I'm in GA btw, can't cook for crap either.
Just saw you said PM, so I'll do that too  :D
