Interesting background sequence, Gothic style is very deep and mystical. Love the lettering, Very impressed with artist and his talent. Enjoyed the class, will love learning this style of Calligraphy!
I've taken a few classes before, but I loved his video on Inner Game. I think it's so important to make time to practice. He's super talented. Thank you!
