Just when I thought my blogging days were over, I find myself beginning again- this time about calligraphy. Not that there were many blogs to begin with, mind you, but you know, I did have a short stories/craft project blog for a while, and another with recipes/tips/life ramblings, you know, the usual. Both are humorous for me to look back on, by the way. If you want a peek into my old blogs, you can find my short stories one here, and the other here.
This blog will be a little different though. Over the past six years of practicing calligraphy, I have tried a lot of things, and learned even more, and I want to share that with you!
What kind of content will you be able to find on this blog? In a word: lots! But, if I had to narrow it down, it will come in the form of...
-Different tips and "tricks" of the trade
-Behind the scenes looks at current projects I'm working on
-My creative process
-Various drill sheets (always a favorite for at home practicing!)
-Project ideas for using calligraphy
-My personal favorite tools to use
-Calligraphy as a hobby and calligraphy as a business
-Traditions around calligraphy
-How to improve your calligraphy (or even just your handwriting!)
If you have a particular question or topic around calligraphy that you have always wondered about, please let me know! I would love to personally answer your question, and also share that information with others too. I know that when I started learning calligraphy on my own, it was sometimes very difficult to find the information that I wanted.
I want this blog to be a resource for you, and a place where you can get your answers for all things calligraphy!
