I started doing calligraphy about a year and a half ago after attending my first IAMPETH conference. It's been an incredible ride. I've learned more about patience and persistence than from anytihng else I've ever tried. Currently I do the ocassional art piece but mainly I do wedding/event calligraphy. I'm hoping this class will help to expand my knowlege of working with lettering and calligraphy digitally. I've been using photoshop mainly but would love to be able to use illustrator better!
My project for this course will be a quote from Oz the Great and Powerful. I find it encouraging and relevant to my calligraphic journey. Plus, I think the layout will be interesting once completed! Looking forward to learning lots! Thanks!
