People tell me I have pretty handwriting, this is because I taught myself how to write again after I got too many complaints about illegible handwriting. That was 10 years ago. I got a spiffy fountain pen and used calligraphy books for inspiration. My current handwriting is based off Tom Gourdie’s italic script.
I can exaggerate my handwriting to make it decorative, but I never learned how to do other styles. I love looking at letters. From ancient scripts to computer fonts and graffiti. Even totally different writing such as Arabic and Japanese calligraphy.
But can’t really create anything myself, other than that variety on my current handwriting.
When I find a calligraphy course nearby, I will take it.
