As many of you know, I’ve taken up the hobby of the modern form of calligraphy and lettering. I’ve already spoken about what it is, and if you also want to know the basics of it, I suggest reading that article, particularly if you also want to start trying it out for yourself too.
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a complete amateur when it comes to these forms of art, since I’m not an artist myself. I can only show you my somewhat shaky and decidedly flawed version of calligraphy. So, this post will be rather short.
I’ve finally started using the Tombow brush pens, and I absolutely love it! It makes practice so much easier, but it also pulls into sharp focus how shaky my hands are. I don’t actually care. In fact, I think it’s something I’ll eventually get over. My hands are naturally shaky, thanks to genetics and my love for coffee… that is a story for another time, but I’m sure, I will eventually overcome this.
For now, enjoy my late night practice of the art. Hopefully, one day I can combine it with watercolours (if I ever get around to it).
Well that’s it from me today. It’s short and sweet, and your turn. Are you a professional calligrapher? Do you have any advice for those of us with shaky hands (other than practice)? Share your pieces, I’d like to see them! Leave all your tips in the jar below, and we’ll see you soon.
