The Hand-Lettering of Others


The I Still Love Calligraphy online calligraphy course has been live for almost a month! It’s going really well, and I’m so proud of what my students have been submitting.

I couldn’t have been more excited to see these beauties pop up in the private teacher/student gallery in the last couple weeks. The quote (above) by Pablo Neruda is really fantastic, and Eileen‘s lettering makes it even better. I love her use of flourishes at the beginning end end of each line. I especially like how she used a downward flourish to cross the t.

Tara of Tine and Thread made this sweet baby announcement for her nephew. I love that she’s played with the orientation of each word and used flourishes to create a compact circular shape. Very lovely indeed! You can see more of her work on her blog or on facebook.

Really, seeing the progress these (and other) students have made makes my heart jump for joy. I love calligraphy and I’m so happy to share knowledge, passion and excitement with others. To read more about my course or sign up, click here.

      I am SO excited about your online calligraphy course! I just got the email about it this morning and cannot wait to get started!

      In other news, you’re not showing up on Blogger anymore? Did you move and if so, I totally missed it. Sad, because I’ve been missing your posts!
