New update, maybe the last. Added "stuff in motion" and simplify the whole stuff while paying attention to negative space :

Updated the nib/keyframe icon :

___Update :

I decided to rework the "illes", which was not good to me.
I used once again, my favorite mitsubishi brush and came with new stuff.
I choosed the best between 7 pages of calligraphy and paste it with the old "G" and "K" :

Then I vectorise the seconde one :

refined it and did cool geometric logos and a symbol which is a blend between an after effect keyframe (i'm a motion designer for a living) and a nib :

Here's the one I love the most :

Hello everyone,
I loved this class being a big fan of Matt's work. I also do calligraphy as a hobby since almost 2 years, this is interesting to see others' process and trying new technics.

Let's begin, first some roughs I did, I was searching some interesting forms and wanted to stay expressive.

 This is really hard to be our own client, I did a lot of roughts.

but found some interesting ideas. I also tried some layouts :

and searched for an icon establishing a relationship between my work as a motion designer and my hobby as a calligrapher. Here a nib with the same shape of an after effects keyframe.

And then I began working with my favorite tool : the brush pen. Doing a great amount of sketchs (I don't show everything here) :

I took photos with my iphone (i'm not at home where my scanner waits for me) and used levels in photoshop with some retouchs to do a selection (before vectorising) but i'm not actually sure of my choice, I don't know which one i do love the most.
