Two weekends ago I had the great fortune to study with my new calligraphic hero, Yves Leterme. He is a wonderful teacher, so organized and helpful in his critique. It was a lot of work but so rewarding, and I had a blast! Most days my work requires that I mainly write pretty script letters and pull swashy flourishes for a wedding something-or-other. Yves, however, had us thinking outside the box (one of my favourite things to do). Here are some of what I consider to be my best words of the weekend…
Tremendous work! swoon…just beautiful!
You really did excel in Yves class. Great gestural writing my friend.
Thank you so much!
You're an amazing calligrapher – brat!
Beautiful work! Looks like you enjoyed yourself.
