I’ve been exploring some site’s which are to do with calligraphy following on from looking at hand drawn lettering.
I came across an artist named Tobias D’albert – a German artist who specialises in calligraphy. His website is here:
And his Flickr stream is full of some very beautiful calligraphy and art work.
I’ve also been watching some tutorials from this site, particularly interested in the video’s which demonstrate which tools and brushes to use for calligraphy. I’m not too interested in acquiring lots of fountain pens and nibs, more so in the effect you get using brushes or brush pens to create lettering.
I’ll post about any experiments with brushes later.
