    Hey girl hey is a dance move I learned at a group dance class for slutty dance moves. I think the instructor made it up because I can’t seem to find it online by that name. One day I shall instruct you on it if yer lucky and you can greet your favorite girl this way.

  6. What’s interesting is that I simultaneously think I kinda know what he means, and have absolutely no clue what he means.

    Here we have two attempts. Sex was done first and I’m really quite proud of that “S.” I added my buddy Ray’s name a little bit later, as a joke and it’s not all that bad either. The “R” is pretty cool, I think. Again, fountain pen jankiness.

    That S is so damn good! 

    And welcome to the best damn hobby in the world!  Did I say hobby?  I meant WAY OF LIFE.

     
  8. The boyfriend of my beloved friend and fellow calligrapher, Remy, has suffered a major accident and is in the hospital in very serious condition.  Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

    Practicing and trying out different nibs and inks, writing down song lyrics.

    Nibs used in these attempts are:

    • Nikko G - love the hairline lines from it, and it’s generally gentler lines with it, but the nib is a little bit too stiff and hard for my taste
    • Hunt Imperial 101 - soft nib, but can cause text to look bolded if I don’t take a lot of care with pressure.
    • Gillott 303 - for fine writing, not too sure what I think about this nib. Need more practice.

    Inks:

    • TOZ Penkala Leonardhi black ink - I like how it behaves most of the time
    • cheap purple ink - it’s cheap, and it behaves so.

    Music listened to and used for lyrics while doing the practice run:

    • Mountain Goats - Lovecraft in Brooklyn
    • Massive Attack - Man Next Door
    • Massive Attack - Karmacoma
    • Death In Vegas - Aisha
    • The Presets - Ghosts
    • The Presets - Girls and Sea
    • Crystal Method ft. Emily Haines - Come Back Clean

    I love everything about this.
