A while back a good friend of mine, Brooke Gibson, was writing a fantastic blog, WaxMama. The blog was about local artists, products, etc for women in the Charlotte area. Although I haven’t mentioned it yet on this blog, from time to time I will do a calligraphy project. It may be for a friend, a wedding or just for some art to hang in my house, but it is such a lost art that I proud to be able to do. I learned from my Dad and Grandma Grace – and think of them every time I do it! Such a great talent to have… if you ask me!
Calligraphy has recently taken a turn and is getting very “funky”. I love to see the new styles that people are coming up with! You can see a lot of very cool ideas on my calligraphy board on pinterest.
There are some wonderful calligraphers out there. Here are three that I follow:
Momental Designs with Kristy Rice. I mean come on, this lady is just RIDICULOUS! I love, love her work and always look forward to what she has done next. The calligrapher that she used on this piece is just awesome – what a unique twist on lettering! Follow Kristy on Twitter @riceink .
Go pick up a set of calligraphy pens and learn a new art! You will be glad you did.
