This week there is again wonderful opportunity to showcase some hand lettering art here. Posting few works using chalk on the wall. For more projects on Hand Lettering visit the portfolio page. The third entry for Alphabet which is the lettering way to celebrate birthday of my nephew. The art has combo of Devnagari (Marathi) and English script.

Basics Strokes of Devnagari Calligraphy creating beautiful patterns called CalliPatterns. All the strokes are transformed in a round shape to indicate unity. Though not tried here, some other basic shapes like rectangle, square will also create beauty. Some more transformations can be viewed at CalliPatterns.
The hand lettering excercise tries on paper with ink and then trace in photoshop. This agao=in printed on paper. It always inspire me as I pulled it from my father’s design. It says: It worth doing the task which is difficult otherwise, ordinary tasks are done by all. There may be many quotes like this but it inspires me more. I am sure you will find The Artist’s Eye in this.

While browsing, came across some of the learning resources on calligraphy. A lot of Project Ideas are mentioned at Dancing Pen Caligraphy. Exhibtion of the work by some of world renowned calligraphers is interesting and can be visited at Calligraphy Expo. The project participants are from almost every corner of the globe. It has books on calligraphy mainly in Russian. I would like to recommend Art of Calligraphy by David Harris which is in English. We can down load the book here.
