Hi Alice,

Thank you for making this class. I'm super excited to get started with black letter calligraphy. I uploaded some of my progress. I feel really good and encouraged to keep at it. Your detailed explanations on each letter are very helpful.

I find that pilot ink tends to bleed a lot on printer paper which makes it really hard to use. Marker paper works pretty well but I have problems with smudges as the ink doesn't get absorbed by the paper. Ecoline ink works better on standard printer paper. So my search for paper continues.
