Gothic BootCamp 2016 Step I

Hello Alice and bootcampers,

here is my journey in this calligraphy land of Gothic.

I've started loving calligraphy not a long ago, looking at some videos on internet.

One that made the passion start was from Denis Brown, an irish calligrapher, when he compared calligraphy with swordmanship and , since I practice Yoga and Taichi, the step was easy....calligraphy as a martial art of nibs vs paper !!
