    You are too nice!  You’re lucky you know me on tumblr.  In real life, I can be a bit of a poophead.

    I took the afternoon off work yesterday to attend a Calligraphy class with my friend Gem because it sounded like a fun thing to do, and I needed to de-stress a little bit.

    Plus I I love lettering and fonts and typography and all that, so it was kind of a no-brainer. I…

    Okay, serious answer!  I’m not sure it’s my favorite (how can you choose just one???), but here’s the script I’ve been working on lately:

    Kanzlei is indeed a Blackletter script!  It is just one of the many zesty scripts found in this amazingimage

     book. 

    Also shown is my amazing “Good frined” pencil case!

    AH HA! I see your Dan X. Solo and raise you… another Dan X. Solo XD

    I apologize for the lack of any real paintings as GRE has been upon me (I’m taking it this week!) and I haven’t had the patient nor time to sit down and knock down my project I’m trying to do (which exists believe it or not).

    In any case…I haven’t done a messy abstract in awhile and well…thought I would do one tonight. For those of you that appreciate these paintings, enjoy.

You should raise your standards. You can comment on people's work to encourage them without filling up people's dashes with this stuff. There's way too much good work out there from people making progress or at least using guidelines!

    I wondered when I would get this message from someone too cowardly to attach their name to the message of shame.
    Don’t like what we post?
    Put up or shut up.
    People practicing and learning and growing is 1000x more awesome to us than the same 50 perfect examples.
    Screw you very much.

    To everyone else be ye beginners or pros: No one can judge you but you. Improve yourself based on your OWN yardstick.

    Calligraphy is very beautiful but it is not a natural handwriting hence why we see the beauty in each line. No one, not a single person, started writing and it was calligraphy and it was perfect.

    Yes these “amateurs” make mistakes.
    But you know what mistakes tell us?
    They are human.
    If personX makes mistakes and they keep going and keep trying and they are getting better then it makes the mystery out of it a little for those of us who see the errors However it also puts the art within reach.

    So go fuck yourself anon, if you don’t like this blog go start your own but don’t think for a damn minute that I am going to change the why and the way this blog is run for some little coward.

    Hey-hey! This is the first time I’m ever reviewing something on the internet… kind of. Like, ever.

    And as someone who enjoys some good anime merch and other cute Japanese things, I am constantly on the lookout for websites that deliver just that. So I decided to start doing reviews for stuff. Not just for the Japanese/Anime/Cute stuff. But for everything. In general. And you can trust me! Because I’m not getting paid for these reviews! At all! (I wish!)

    Anyway, it’s posted over here! And if you want to read future reviews you could subcribe (via RSS) or follow or bookmark my Wordpress! Thanks for reading. Make sure to leave comments, if you want. This is my first real review, so I’d appreciate the feedback.

    It is a taaaad bit word heavy, because that’s just kinda how I am.
