Print is Beautiful


I am beyond thrilled to share the news that my work will be published in the upcoming issue of UPPERCASE Magazine!

From Janine Vangool, publisher / editor / designer of UPPERCASE:

Issue #23 contains a special calligraphy and lettering section featuring Seb Lester (our cover calligrapher), master penman Jake Weidmann and profiles of Joy Deneen, Maybelle Imasa-Stukuls, Erica McPhee, Barbara Calzolari, Neil Tasker, Pietro Piscitelli and Molly Jacques.

So very honored to contribute to this special issue which features so many of my calligraphy heroes. I have a small spotlight among other calligraphers who also submitted their work for this issue.

There’s a low res digital preview of issue 23 posted here. I also did some promo lettering for UPPERCASE which you can see in the video link above.

One Oval At A Time


I’m getting ready for Master Penman Harvest Crittenden’s online Spencerian class starting in a few days.

I have to say although it may *look* easy, this oval drill is pretty tough. The goal, according to Master C.P. Zaner’s Lessons in Ornamental Penmanship, is to have all the ovals in uniform slant, height, and spacing.

Obviously I have a long way to go – but it can only get better from here!
