My life is turning ugly and I had to find a way to cope. I am deluding myself into believing that making beautiful art through Calligraphy can make my life beautiful or at least better. I KNOW that life is hard and I honestly will not choose a life of pure joy and without its share of hardships. But as we grow older, problems get bigger and harder to bear. So to cope… I choose Calligraphy. Way healthier than denial and drugs, right? I am just new to Calligraphy but I am posting my “artworks” and other thoughts on this blog.
So, this is one of my first attempts at beautiful handwriting. I used the alphabet style Uncial, a rounded, majuscule (written in capitals) lettering derived from Roman capitals. I should have started with an easier style, maybe Monoline, but this lettering is more aesthetically pleasing to my eyes. I used Artline Calligraphy Pen 4.0 to write the letters. Ready-to-use calligraphy pens can be found at your local bookstore, I found mine at National Book Store, these ready-to-use calligraphy pens are a cheaper alternative to nibs and inks. Good for newbies like me. Obviously, I need more practice but I think I did pretty good for a first-timer, right?
Anyway, thanks for visiting my blog. Do leave comments and suggestions. I will try to add a new post every 3 days so come on back.
Thanks ^_^ Let’s enjoy this bumpy ride called life!
