It is a rarity that I place calligraphy these days on paper for a client. However, every now and then it happens. This might be the 3rd or 4th time this year for me. It's funny because when I am asked my initial thought is "sure, no problem" because its easy, breezy... But when I write on beautiful paper such as this Crane ecru with another "tried and true" like Moon Palace Sumi ink, I am reminded of why I love calligraphy. Something so simple, but well executed is beautiful. Everything just comes together perfectly. Calligraphing these was like silk. There is an old adage in calligraphy. "The calligraphy is only as beautiful as the materials used". Dammit if that isn't true EVERYTIME!
This project was for a new company having an event here in Houston called DearDuck that specializes in the art of gift-giving. If you don't know what to give a person as a gift, they take away all of the stress & frustration and do all of the heavy-lifting. Big hello and thanks to Three Smudges Photography for introducing us! Can't wait to check them out!
