So I impulse-bought some calligraphy pens...

I've never attempted proper calligraphy before and don't know the first thing about it really, so if you're a calligraphy master don't go getting your judgy pants on! I thought they'd be fun to play around with and might produce some interesting results. They came in a pack of three, each with a different width. These are some quick doodles I did with them (above), and I worked it into a watercolour pattern I'd created previously (below). What do you think?

Looking forward to playing around with them more :)

  3. Wow, your doodles are so great - well done.
    I have just started to try to teach myself the art of calligraphy, and I think its going to be a long while before I am able to post any picks of my daft attempts (eek!)
    Nice to see your work - keep it up!

  4. Thanks, Josh, I really appreciate that! :)
