Words to live by

I've decided that one of my goals for this year is to devote some time to some of the things that I've always wanted to try. One of these things is calligraphy. I'm a big typography fan, and I've been making cards with fancy fonts, but I haven't really sat down to study calligraphy properly. Yesterday, I got my Pilot parallel pens out and just started scribbling and doodling away.

I think the one thing that has stopped me from pursuing calligraphy seriously is that it requires a lot of patience, a virtue that I sorely lack. The calligraphy below was done without any measurements, hence, you will notice that the sizing and spacing are a bit askew. I still have a lot to learn, I know.

Doing this has got me thinking about new projects involving calligraphy. I'm really excited, but I know that first I must learn to be patient. :)
