I got 99 problems, and trying to take a decent picture of my work is definitely one of them. Whether it be metallic ink, or working with mirrors + glass, the photography struggle is real. I did backbends around my house trying to prop up this piece up with the correct background and lighting (moving lamps and chairs around like a crazy lady). So cheers to the best shot I could get of this forever favorite seating chart piece to date ▶️ Oh, and cheers to a much deserved selfie. ✨🥂

First letter group to practice for Dreaming in Script! Lots of ink jumps, some snags and one instance on an ‘m’ where I went into principle 2 instead of 3. It’s all part of slowing down, taking my time and not rushing the process. Lots of things went well too - I see a decent amount of consistency in my interval spacing and slant. Another day of practice logged and it will all contribute to my penmanship in the future. Have a great Tuesday!!

Picked up a sad looking pumpkin at a *very* muddy pumpkin patch... It was too thick to carve properly (which I found out after I got elbow deep in mush and pumpkin seeds 🙄), a bit grubby and fairly lop sided.... After a bit of flower wizardry at coleg Cambria and some calligraphy with my trusty posca pen I think he scrubs up pretty well! Not exactly spooky but definitely in the autumnal spirit 🎃

“Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact.” 💚 . . . . . What inspires you? There are a lot of things that can provide inspiration – seeing other people accomplish great things, seeing other people overcome adversity, hearing inspirational quotes from great people, even the sheer beauty of nature can remind us just how lucky we are to be alive. . . It’s easy to forget what an amazing gift life really is. Our lives are nothing but a cosmic blink. Even our seemingly all-encompassing world is just tiny blue dot circling an average sized star spiraling around a galaxy of 200-400 billion stars, which itself is just one galaxy among billions more. Yet for one brief moment, we get to experience the wonders of existence, of consciousness. . Having a positive outlook on life is a crucial part of finding inspiration. In the paragraph above, did you feel inspired reading about the vastness of our universe and our unique place within it, or did you feel overwhelmed and depressed at the insignificance of it all? . Our brains are wired to find things we’re looking for – if you’re always cynical or waiting for things to go wrong, then your life will reflect that. On the other hand, having a positive outlook on life will bring you joy and provide you with inspiration when you least expect it. . Of course, there are times when it’s difficult to feel cheery or positive – life can be difficult. If you’re having trouble seeing the cup as half full instead of half empty, try seeing the other side. .. And explore... . #calligrapher#calligraphy#lettering#moderncalligraphy#handlettering#art#calligraphyart#calligraphylove#handwriting#calligraphymasters#handlettered#weddingcalligraphy#calligraphypractice#moderncalligrapher#artist#wedding#typography#weddinginspo#brushlettering#copperplatecalligraphy#bride#calligraphyaddict#weddinginvitations#handmade#calligraphydaily
