On Saturday I'm at a workshop with Angela Dalleywater, where she will be teaching us tricks for laying out pieces with words plus their translation into another language.
As pre-work for the day, we had to write out some Latin words. I'm meant to be dusting down my italic, as I'm teaching at my Nottingham calligraphy class AND my Newark calligraphy class starting in a few weeks.... so thought I'd use italic. Well - it looks OK, but then I took it into Photoshop and inverted it (black to white and vice versa) - it's magic! Makes it look much lovelier than it deserves!
Depending on how it goes, I m-a-y share the output from Saturday....
I'm Janet Smith, a calligrapher who loves to experiment with lettering and calligraphy.
