  • it’s so satisfying to watch this!

    • yes! especially the closeups of it flowing out of the tip of the quill

  • What a wonderful video! I have been doing a bit of calligraphy these days but the control the artist has is amazing. Very envious of his skills.

  • Cassie

    definitely cool video but this guy is an ass, he sent hate mail attacking revoks and rime’s work from msk, he sounds stuck up and doesn’t think things through.

  • KLC

    Great site, blog and post, keep up the excellent work 🙂

  • Wow. How beautifully shot. I love the marriage of the planned and the spontaneous. I also love to see his preparation routine at the beginning. Elegant.

  • Gives me a peaceful, relaxing feeling. The speed of his hand is like dancing on the paper.
