The Art of Writing
Last Friday, I took my first calligraphy class since I was a kid. It was fascinating to see all of the work that goes into drawing a single letter. Three hours into the class, I finally started to understand the importance of holding the pen at a precise angle, applying just the right amount of pressure, and carefully connecting each stroke. I already do some hand-lettering in my work, but have always wanted to learn the fundamentals, so this class was definitely helpful.
Today, this video popped up in my inbox, and I just had to share. Maybe with a few (hundred) years of practice, I will be this talented someday!
