For My Daughter

"You are my sun, my moon, and all of my stars." E.E. Cummings

I plan to calligraph this quote as a print for my daughter's nursery. I think it beautifully sums up a mother's love for her child...or at least it does for me! I'm excited for the class and putting my own artistic spin on this beautiful quote. 

1/27/16 : Finally got my calligraphy materials and got to sit down to practice last night. Here are a few of my practice sheets. 

I've also included a photo of my very rough first draft of my quote. I've got a good friend who teaches watercolor and I'm hoping to sit down with her and illustrate a bit with some moons and stars surrounding the quote. We'll see how it goes! (Ignore the little swashes at the end of "you" and "are"...I was just playing around but I don't love them).

2/3/16:

So I've been working on keeping my writing at a consistent angle. I've still got some work to do in that area. Perhaps a light box would have been helpful here since I was writting on pretty opaque paper. I've also been playing with letter size and alignment. I love the look of calligraphy that appears to just be bouncing along. "And" and "all" were probably my best attempts at this style. I hope to keep taking Bryn's courses and to keep on improving. Until then...here's my best go for now!
