Hand Calligraphy

I've just finished this hand calligraphy order for an upcoming IPA event in London.

I love doing calligraphy, there's something so simple about pen and ink work. The ink flows and you just have to relax and guide it. I use the oblique speedball holder with a beautiful Japanese Nikko G nib. The ink I tend to use is either black winsor and newton calligraphy ink which gives a nice thick line or the gold winsor and newton standard ink which is a little more opaque and its a totally different effect. Lettering name place cards is such a pleasure for me.

If you'd like some calligraphy created, please contact me.
