A fascinating mix of letter styles by Carl Rohrs posted by Doug Boyd in his classroom.
Everywhere I looked last week was talent devoted to letters, words, quotes, materials, tools and good design. The best thing was that no matter what your calligraphy level of experience, all were gathered of one interest. The sharing was incredible from everyone. There wasn’t any secret recipes, secret techniques or secret agents. I think because as varied as our own handwriting is, so is the art of calligraphy. You can’t help but have your own style. No matter how much you share, we will all be unique. I’ve known, but come to understand, calligraphers are a caring group of folks .
My “Slnky Book” . . . . about 8 manhours to complete (oh no, my estimating is coming through).
I was so nervous to write names on paper that Jan prepared with lovely callagraphic birds and flowers at our show. She drafted me and I admit I had a blast (only one misspelled word, Anastasia).
Our instructors, Bob Phillips (Roswell, NM), Bev Taylor (Farmington, NM), Carol Pallesen (Reno, NV) and Doug Boyd (San Diego, CA). So much teaching talent in one location. Thanks to you all.
