trying my hand at calligraphy


Inspired by Melissa Esplin (of ISLY) and her amazing calligraphy, I decided to try my hand at some of my own calligraphy. Can I just say that it is really really difficult! I went to the library and got a bunch of books and have read some tutorials, but that doesn't make it any easier.

So, in order to make things a little easier, I have signed up for a calligraphy class from Melissa Esplin. I'm so excited. I can't wait actually learn what I should be doing.

I also got inspiration from Ashes&Milk. Isn't that calligraphy amazing? Anyone know who lettered it? There are so many amazing calligraphers out there, and I know I will never be as good as any of them, but hey, it's always fun to learn a new art!

I can't wait!! Calligraphy will be so much fun.

That Ashes & Milk looks like the work of calligrapher Betsy Dunlap:

her work is incredible.
