My Calligraphy

I've had a blast this week getting back into calligraphy. I first learned calligraphy as a 7 or 8 year old from my mother. She signed up for a calligraphy class after her brother died as a way to cope with her loss. I was fascinated by her fancy pens and fancing writing that I wanted to try. She taught me and I really haven't done it since then. That was 1988. 

Fast forward to August 2014 and here I am taking this class on Skillshare. I have spent hours and hours over the past 5 days practicing. In a sense this has been cheap therapy for me. Here is some of my practice work. I am using Canson Marker Paper.

Here is one example of a song title that I'm quite happy with. 

I've really enjoyed this class and thank you Molly for your tips and tricks. Modern calligraphy was all new to me up until a few days ago. It was a challenge at first but now I'm pretty confident I can only get better.

Any feedback is welcome.
