Don't you do calligraphy in the dark? - Houston Calligrapher

I have been very fortunate to maintain a full calendar with jobs.  As anyone will tell you, that is a blessing but every blue moon it is a curse.  When your calendar is booked you usually don't have wiggle room for 'unforeseen circumstances'....such as power outages.  Today, my electricity went out due to the storms that we have been experiencing here in Houston.  At the same time, I was working on a job that needed to be completed today as there are jobs booked directly behind it on the calendar.  That meant that I needed to work in the dark.  Thank goodness for my trusty battery operated laser.

I am happy to say that I did finish today and it also made for a cool picture on my phone.   #MakeItWork. Cheers!

Houston Calligrapher - Embossing

The only way I send out my correspondence....blind embossing the return address.  This is actually the formal etiquette for return addressing a wedding invitation & has been my preference for my correspondence for years along with wax seals.  I began offering this to my clients this year & it has been well received.  It's clean, classic and is offered in various styles.

Houston Calligraphy - Tattoo Design

During my typography class today, my instructor began to talk about serifs which encouraged me to doodle in pencil.  Must stop doing that!  Pay attention, Janet!  I digress.  

During my doodle session, I thought about a potential tattoo for myself since I have been designing tattoos for so many clients lately.  Maybe for my 40th birthday.....or never.  Probably never, but who knows......

Hand written calligraphy is the most elegant form of communication and an event focused on the art of others deserves nothing less.  As a Houston calligrapher & engraver, I believe in doing it beautifully or not at all.
