Hi all! 

I've not been on here much for the last... quite a while. I've been busy with calligraphy, and thought I should share a bit of an update here:

Nice work Robin - particularly the medium one.


I have an opinion and I'm not afraid to use it.

Thanks both! 

Precision is my nemesis - it's what I aim for, and so often miss, so it's really lovely to hear that I've managed to achieve that here :)

All of your examples are beautifully executed.

Anyone receiving a birthday card like the one you show should put it in an album and keep it. Certainly not the usual throwaway

You may have been absent but you haven't wasted your time

You have an enviable talent

Thank you for sharing

Beautiful writing! And that Grimnismal strophe is one of my favourites, but you may want to consider this, which interprets it that they are sent to the underworld (the realm of Hel), not 'the vast earth'. It gave me a new appreciation of its depth and beauty.
