As some of you may know, I’ve been taking Master Penman Harvest Crittenden‘s Beginning Spencerian online class for the last 6 weeks. During this time, I haven’t done much Copperplate practice. In preparation for an Introduction to Copperplate Calligraphy workshop that I’ll be hosting with by good friend Grace Jimenez (@bygraceabounds) in March, I’ve concluded that I need to get my Copperplate game back on — stat!
For the next 7 days, I’ll be doing a personal Copperplate Bootcamp to get my letterforms back in shape — literally! I’ll be sharing 7 of my favorite drill exercises (one per day) on Periscope (@anintran), an awesome app that allows you to watch and broadcast videos live. Cool, right?
I broadcasted Day 1 of my Copperplate Bootcamp earlier this evening. Note: Periscope broadcasts expire after 24 hours.
Get your pen, paper, and ink out and do these drill exercises with me. If you post on Instagram, be sure to tag your photos #anintran_drills so I can see your drills too.
The materials that I’ll be using during my broadcast over the next 7 days are:
- Hunt 101 nib
- Norton’s Walnut Ink
- Dinky Dips
- Penholder by Chris Held
- HP Premium Choice Laserjet Paper
- 55-degree Slant Guide Sheet from IAMPETH.com
Let’s do this!
See you on Periscope (@anintran)!
