Well, my @silhouette.inc cutting machine finally made its debut - it only sat in my drawer for a year 🤪 Does that happen to you? I didn't focus on making ornaments this holiday season but I treated my workshop students to one and they were a hit!
On the 1st day of 3 Days of Giveaways, Callahan and Co. gave to me: a custom hand painted doormat! All you have to do to be entered is: Follow me! Like this pic! Share this pic to your story! Tag your friends in separate comments! (the more comments, the better your chances) - Must be able to pickup in Corinth or Olive Branch, winner will be announced Friday! Also- I’m not taking any doormat orders at the moment so this is your only chance to get one for Christmas! Good luck!! 🤩
Because when you fudge up the H flourish, you just use it anyway because #handmade 🤷🏻‍♀️😂

⚡️ 2019. Last day to place your orders (UK only) to get stuff in time for Christmas
anyone else as bad as i am about sending thank you cards?? 🤦🏼‍♀️ the act of sending mail for me is torture which is pretty shocking as what i do for a living revolves around things that go in the mail 😂 so i am making a vow to create a cute little area with a cute little box set of cute little notecards and letter accoutrements this season so there’s NO reason (except my laziness) not to send them this year. i was gonna say it’s my resolution... but i hate those and i really don’t want to be that person who starts talking about them already 😬🙄
Flourish motto number 3: avoid hot spots and what I like to call warm spots!  Hot spots are where lines touch tangentially (in other words, not an intersection where there is a clear angle made by two lines). In most cases, hot spots confuse our little human brains as to where the line direction is going. Take the left ‘yay’ as example, it’s almost as if I wrote an X on the bottom, right? When the brain sees potential alternatives to understanding the lines, very simply... it’s bothered. Therefore it’s not very pleasing to the eye.  Warm spots (yes, I totally made this up but go with me here) are where lines get too close to each other that they are on the verge of becoming a hot spot. In some ways they’re even more displeasing to look at than hot spots. When lines get too close they look crowded and squished, and therefore look haphazard and messy.  Instead ✨ try opening up flourish lines where you anticipate them to touch or come close. Stretch open loops where appropriate, and even take the opportunity to break your stroke. This can sometimes create dimension, and liveliness! In the right ‘yay’ it’s almost as if the first y is stacked on top of the second y, right?  Are you enjoying these flourishing tips/mottos? Check out the FREE flourishing worksheet in my bio. 👍🏻
[ J O Y ]  Puh! Also eigentlich wollte ich mir noch ein passendes Thema suchen und dazu etwas schreiben, doch gerade bin ich absolut KO. Mit „Joy“ hat es gerade gefühlstechnisch auch nicht mehr viel zu tun!🙈 150 Bilder später, tausende Bearbeitungen verschiedener Nuoncen, in den Feed rein bearbeiten um zu schauen ob es sich schön einfügt, und einige Nerven später.... so ist das manchmal, erzähle ich dir jetzt davon! Nicht einfach nur malen, ein bisschen was Drumherum legen und schnell abknipsen! Man hat eine Vorstellung im Kopf wie es aussehen soll und dann klappt es nicht so wie man es unbedingt gerne haben wollte! Anstatt es gut sein zu lassen treibt der Perfektionismus in mir mich an, dicht gefolgt von der Frustration das ich diesen nicht befriedigen kann! Plötzlich fange ich sämtliche Sachen an zu kritisieren die eigentlich garnicht zur Diskussion standen! Nicht schön genug gemalt, Farben nicht gut genug ausgewählt, Fotoperspektive nicht perfekt genug, Flatlay eigentlich auch doof und langweilig! Halt Stop!!! Also Laura mal ehrlich am Anfang warst du damit doch zufrieden!? Und jetzt plötzlich ist das alles schlecht und nicht gut genug!? Eine Diskussion die ich wirklich oft mit mir führe! Ich schaffe es jedesmal ein bisschen früher zu sagen „so jetzt reichst, du lässt das jetzt so wie es ist und das ist absolut okay!“ warum ich dir das erzähle? Erstens weil es mich gerade absolut beschäftigt hat und ich kurz vorm Wahnsinn war und zweitens um zu zeigen wieviel Konzept, Herzblut, Gedanken und co. Hinter einem vermeintlich „einfachen Bild“ steckt! (Und das bei jedem von uns!) Und auch nachdem ich es hochgeladen habe ist die Arbeit noch nicht getan immerhin muss ich jetzt noch 149 Bilder löschen damit mein Speicher nicht explodiert🤪✌🏻 . . #christmasillustration #aquarellpainting #realtalk #moderncalligraphy
This photo shows the evolution of a #monogram #calligraphy alphabet, from initial pencil sketches and notes on graph paper, to a B&W printer's proof of my manuscript, to the final, full-color version in my new book, Mastering Modern Calligraphy. (This is the Borealis alphabet, which you can find on page 155!)⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Swipe left and you'll see some more snapshots of the writing process: my #longhand (and very sloppy!) table of contents next to the final version; pencil notes scrawled into an early proof; and the very first print-out of the manuscript, when it was about 80% complete.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ I spent two full years working this book, and it all started with sketches. TONS of sketches. When designing a cohesive alphabet, where the letters match and many forms repeat, I really love to use pencil. A better way of saying that would be that I love being able to erase! I usually go through lots of versions as I go, tweaking forms to complement other forms, and playing with proportion, weight, and slant.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ After I submitted the final interior layout to my publisher, it was time to move on to designing the cover. If you'd like to see some of the nixed cover options in another post, let me know in the comments!⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #masteringmoderncalligraphy #monogramalphabet #imacalligrafile #calligraphybook #sketchingletters #calligraphyalphabet #learnmoderncalligraphy #moderncalligraphy

Since today is the next episode of @themandalorian, I thought it would be the perfect day to share my first "making of" video for my #babyyoda post from last week.⠀ ⠀ Funny story, I actually totally stumbled on the show and this adorably addition to the Star Wars universe a little unintentionally.⠀ ⠀ I'm a big Star Wars fan (probably not a huge surprise), but because things have been pretty busy lately, so I didn't see #themandalorian when it premiered. I knew I'd eventually watch it, but wasn't sure when. ⠀ ⠀ Someone incredibly wonderful ended up sending me a photo of "baby Yoda" before the Thanksgiving break, though, and I eventually put 2 and 2 together (it admittedly took me longer than it probably should have 😂) and realized that the character must be related to the show. So I started watching and am now a fan!⠀ ⠀ The only parts missing from this process video adding the shadows (which I do with an airbrush) and the white "stars" effect (which I do with a toothbrush). I do these in a separate spot from my studio area (mostly because of the fumes when airbrushing) and hope to get a video setup there soon!⠀ ⠀ I'm working on a few projects at the moment, including a detailed tutorial about how to make these abstracts - these are some of the things I'm asked about the most and am really excited to offer some more help on :⠀ ⠀ 1. Abstract calligraphy art (like today's post)⠀ 2. How to size circles for specific text (similar to the last video I shared)⠀ 3. How to make 3D calligraphy art⠀ 4. Comprehensive calligraphy supply guide⠀ ⠀ I'd really love to hear which one of these you'd most like to learn about or if there's anything else I missed and can help with? 😃

I’ve noticed I’m posting so much advertising / promo content at the moment, apologies that this is how my account has turned out. I intend to post more educational work such as these videos, I know a lot of you prefer real time to time lapses. Unfortunately I gotta promote my personal work (prints, paintings, pots) especially in the run up to Christmas. Hopefully if you’re still here then you don’t mind the occasional nudge to buy my stuff and keep helping me be able to pay my rent! Feel free to comment / message me with what you like or don’t like about my content ✨  PS this is done using acrylic paints and a flat brush
#realtime mmmm using #pilotparallelpen 6.0mm. apologies for the nail varnish

❄️☃️ Az első hó. Számomra egy kortalan gyermeki öröm, mert nem számít, hány éves vagy, legszívesebben kiszaladnál a friss hóba, belehuppannál és hóangyalt készítenél, néznéd a friss nyomokat és hallgatnád a ropogását a talpad alatt, hóembert építenél, majd miután jól átfagytál és élénk pirosra váltott arcod s kezed, otthon egy forró csokival bekuckóznál a kanapéra, gyönyörködnél a feldíszített fában és a szeretteid körében várnád a Karácsonyt. Remélem, csodásan indult a reggeletek és ti is örültök az első hónak. Boldogan osztom meg a hírt, hogy mostantól rendelhetőek a karácsonyi díszek!
#pilotparallelpen 6.0mm. fave to practice single letters with!  also been using my @sudio Bluetooth headphones this week (pictured) which have been so useful when working from home.

This includes earphones as well as headphones 🤙🏼 go treat yaself for Christmas #sudiomoments
