Since I’m not at the Neutral Milk Hotel show at the Hollywood Bowl tonight, I might as well letter something… 😆


Still a bit rusty but getting there.

Pilot Parallel Pen, walnut ink.


Exactly three years ago today, I formally started my calligraphy journey. I will be forever grateful to my 6th grade teacher Mrs. K for introducing me to calligraphy, and to my current teacher for answering my email and agreeing to teach me copperplate in 2011 (and then four more hands!). She is a constant inspiration. And last but not least, thanks Tumblr friends for all your support and encouragement! It’s been a great 3 years and here’s to many more years of learning and growing! ✒️💕

Listening to Galaxie 500 and practicing some handlettering. 🚢

Yep I’m giving myself a Fraktur refresher. There’s a table under there somewhere… 

I probably went a bit overboard here but that was fun 😁


Homework on a Saturday night. Hope I’m on the right track ✒️ 

Fun with watercoloring! Lots and lots of flowers here and there.🌿


Inspired by my favorite library. @losangeleslibrary 🏤📚

Got some good news tonight and had to express how I feel. 🙏
