When I got home from Palm Springs I dug around in my supply cabinet and located this oblique dip pen and some ink that I had from a class I took years ago. I didn't really learn much from that class but came home from my art retreat determined to commit to some regular practice. I got a book of different fonts so I would have something to copy.
Luckily I know that it will take some work before I am ready to knock anyone's socks off with my fancy lettering. Nonetheless, it is very fun to practice. I figure if I do even just a little bit everyday I am bound to improve. I think if Mrs. Berg, one of my grade school teachers, were here right now she would tell me to do one line of each letter. She was pretty smart after all I guess.
