What Does Your Handwriting Look Like



Rate Topic 0

Recommended Posts

I thought there should be a topic where we post pictures of our handwriting and comment, so I decided to start one. This was a writing sample I posted here for someone about a cursive italic Parker 51 nib.

I'll post a pic of my writing as soon as one of your pens gets to me... as with some ink.

 

But to describe my hand writing... is sort of like a kid having a seizure... and the print is no better.

Or could be like a doctors... But when I slow down and try, I can make it look good.

Cuts can heal over, become scars and you'll keep living. Take it one step at a time, soon you'll wish you could take it slower.

I asked Richard to do it at the Philly Pen Show.

I've been meaning to make a new sample to post here, but haven't had taken the time. In the interim, here's one I posted a couple months ago:

Im glad this post is back. Previously you could always find samples of other users handwriting which is always very interesting. I recall that previously your handwriting was submitted for comments by others? Anyway, good to see it return. Will post a sample of mine later once Ive done a hundred lines to warm up.

 

:roflmho:

In my case, I don't think I was so much looking for critique as wanting to hold up my end. I enjoy seeing others' handwriting and felt like I should reciprocate. Your comment about doing 100 lines to warm up makes me think I should do that same and submit another sample, however. :)

Here are some examples of mine. The first one was part of a draft of an article which has now been published. The second one was my 'doodling' while taking a break from writing the above article.

i'm an art teacher so i don't write very many notes besides 'NO NAME -5' on the back of their work.

I'm so happy everybody is posting their handwriting. I find all of this very interesting.

Keep up the good work! :clap1:

That's wonderful! It looks very elegant to me and with a lot of personality.

 

It also makes me want to round up an extra fine and see what my own writing would look like in a finer line.

First of all, this is a really great thread and I'm enjoying seeing everyone's writing.

 

My writing is a work in progress. Here's a sample of what it looks like when I'm not thinking about it:

And here's a hand with which I'm experimenting. I can't call it "my" handwriting yet:

The first sample is written with a Pelikan M205 F; the second with a Pelikan M400 EF. Both are unmodified factory nibs.

Well, it's beautiful. I'd say that's a keeper!

This is a sample from some old working notes (Pelikan M400 and Noodler's Black).
