Steady Hands

Posted by Dirck on 30 March, 2012

Following yesterday’s demonstration, I though the Friday slackness might be a display of serious calligraphy:

I can’t help but wonder at the paper being used there; that great quivering dollop of ink that serves as a dot on the i, just sitting there without a sign of feathering.

Today’s pen: Parker “51″
Today’s ink: Diamine Syrah
