52 Lists – Week 14 – Calligraphy

April 9th, 2013

52 Lists // Week 14 // CalligraphyNewest list from Moorea Seal‘s 52 Lists challenge. Had a bit of trouble with the layout on this one, but I think I found a reasonably satisfying solution. I’m not so happy with the hearts at the top though, they’re too big and I wish I’d moved the blocks of text down a little more, away from the header. But still – embracing imperfection ;) I love the little hearts in the squares though.

The script I’m using is uncial. I’ve got my calligraphy class again on Wednesday, I’m currently working on learning the carolingian minuscule.

I feel so naked talking about my dreams…

    Your lists are so pretty! I love calligraphy. I love all of your dream jobs, especially karate trainer. I’ve never thought of doing that one, however I would love to *learn* karate. ^_^

      Thank you very much :D Hehe, Karate is AWESOME :D I’ve been training for around 10 years now and I love it so much. I’ve taught a bit too already, and would like to again some day, but before then I want to be a lot more confident in my skills :) I can deeply recommend karate if you can find a good teacher, it’s so good for your body and mind and a lot of fun too. I’d like to get into Judo at some stage, as it complements karate very well. So many plans in life…

      Thank you for your wonderful comment!

      Thank you so much :D It’s so much fun and I’m so glad I started taking courses again! Currently working on learning a new script, hope I get to do one of the lists with that one soon…

      Oh yes, I totally wanted to be a Pokémon Master :D Actually I was the first to collect all 150 Pokémon in the game (except Mew) in our neighburhood and I knew frickin’ EVERYTHING about the games xD

      Good times.

      Pokémon was actually a very valuable time for me, as it got me into webdesigning at the age of 12 and also was a great motivation to improve my drawing skills :)
