Learning Something New | Calligraphy












































I have been taking a really fun online calligraphy class from Melissa Esplin, an amazing hand letterer and creative person!  You can find the class I have been taking here. I want to share my practice and progress. I am having so much fun learning something new, and it's awesome to watch how this process can morph into my own style. I was even inspired to add some calligraphy to my online portfolio! My stokes are still kinda shaky, but I am really proud of what I have learned so far. I can't wait to share more progress along the way!




I started out by tracing over the calligraphy with pencil and then tracing with the pen and ink. 



Then I went off on my own, I am having so much fun writing short phrases
