Pretty curly writing

Here's my new pen for learning copperplate. I've been trying it out a bit before I try to learn the actual letter forms, because I thought it would be easier if I was already sort of comfortable using the oblique pen. It's so cool! Such a pity it's totally impractical to have an inkwell on my desk at work and hand write all my letters, but I can't see the boss going for it...


And here's the Fight Club haiku, written with the new pen. It's not any particular script, but I think it's quite pretty anyway. My workmate's daughter is getting married next year, maybe if I've learned copperplate by then she'll let me write her invitations :)

And Aveen, I still have so much to learn because I know I can't draw everything. I'll be waiting for the magazine when it arrives ^^ Thanks again!

Hey! I definitely think you should go out and buy yourself a little starter kit of oil paints.

There are mediums you can use that help the oil dry overnight.

The nice thing about oil is that you can keep working or scraping it off in my case until you get the look you want. email me if you have any questions. hugs!
