I’ve decided that I need a hobby…

Hi there!

I recently got into a little obsession with Calligraphy and Hand Lettering. I’m sure I’m just jumping on the band wagon…but I really couldn’t help myself! So, about 2 weeks ago I went on the hunt for my supplies. Micheal’s has become my best friend and I have no shame! (The place is AMAZING!)

Doing a little research, most people who Hand Letter use Tom Bow Brush Pens…honestly, I didn’t know if I’d stick with it so I got the 24 pack of Micheal’s brand brush markers (Artist’s Loft). There is a decent array of colors…but a couple days ago (I don’t know why it took me that long lol) I noticed that there are no purples in the package whatsoever! Tragic lol. I also got a small multipack of Speed Ball’s Elegant Writer Calligraphy Markers. This came with 3 different tip sizes. I thought that these would be a good substitution for an actual fountain pen. Instead of a journal, I decided to just get a sketch pad (for thick paper) so that I could keep all of my practice in one. I love the satisfaction of seeing progression!


I’m excited to be teaching myself something new and I can’t wait to show my progress with you all. Do any of you have any tips for beginners? I’d love to hear them!

  1. Calligraphy is great. I started my calligraphy journey 3 years ago. I’m a letter lover. I love lettering, calligraphy, typography and type design. You check my page for sample work. Cheers!
