I would have to admit that technology has been taking sort of a passenger's seat lately, in favor of my vintage flexible nibs (the set I previously blogged about). I've been studying Copperplate script and flourishing, as an addition to the modern style that I used to do. Though it seems that I'm mixing in some hints of Spencerian... more practice needed!
Below are writing samples using an Esterbrook 556 nib and a variation between blue and dark pink gouache. I didn't have my poetic brain screwed on, so I just borrowed lyrics from James Morrison, Keane and some Alicia Keys (in a light coffee color mix).
I cannot express how much I love writing. And I do hope that people never forget the rawness of a hand-written note. It has so much emotion within the lines, and I think it's what makes them extra pretty.
Spread the Love.
