52 Lists // Week 19 // Calligraphy

May 14th, 2013

52 Lists // Week 19 // CalligraphyNewest list from Moorea Seal’s 52 Lists Challenge. Enjoying these more and more and I feel I’m getting pretty comfortable with the script I used for this one – the carolingian minuscule. I’m really starting to enjoy using it and it’s getting a lot easier :) I’ve also started refreshing the humanistic cursive in my classes, which was actually the first script I learnt, but that was quite  a long time ago, so it’s pretty rusty :) Looking forward to using that one again.

52 Lists // Week 19 // Calligraphy // Carolingian Minuscule DetailFor this list I mixed up some old, crappy watercolours that I got really cheap at the supermarket several years ago and never really used. Turned out they’re pretty awesome for this kind of practice, if I can get the f****** caps open. The decorations ended up looking a little like twos and sixes, which was unintentional, but that’s okay :D Decorated the header with some simple swirls.

52 Lists // Week 19 // Calligraphy // HeaderI’m sooo glad I started this calligraphy course, I’ve always been in love with beautifully handwritten things and I’m appreciating this course more as I’m seeing the results. Having a weekly or so course to go to really encourages me to practice, and even if I don’t practice at home, I get in two hours a week of practice in the course alone. Totally worth it! I’m hoping to be able to incorporate calligraphy into my graphics design with time :)

Nowhere near a lot of those things, but still, making progress little by little on a lot of them :)

52 Lists is a project by Moorea Seal. I have been using it since the beginning to practice my calligraphy skills. Here you can find all the lists I’ve done so far. If you’re interested in calligraphy inspiration, visit my Pinterest Calligraphy board.
