Wesnesday playing around with my #musicnib. Experiment & have fun. . Lots of new faces here since Iโ€™ve returned to insta, so hereโ€™s a #fridayintroductions. . Iโ€™m Kei, pronounced kay not kigh, the full-time calligrapher behind this, uh, creative fun feed & my professional work over at @haniyacalligraphy. . Iโ€™ve been doing calligraphy & lettering for a long time. I came to pointed pen calligraphy via modern lettering but have in recent years really focused my study on classical scripts & my world has opened up. You can bounce a baseline all day today, but what will you do tomorrow when that trend is done? Behind my scripts that seem new or unique are fundamentals and classical bones. . I was born in South Korea, moved to the USA when I was 5. Iโ€™m an introvert by nature, very sarcastic, perhaps a bit jaded, but still hopeful. Iโ€™ve been married 16 years to the love of my life & have a teenage daughter who is so kind & hella talented even tho she can simultaneously be a mean-ager (but 14 sucks so who can blame her). . I love to cook & bake bread. Youโ€™ll see me indulge in gratuitous cooking photos in my stories but I try not to do it too often. Youโ€™re here for calligraphy after all, but I appreciate you humoring me. Iโ€™m addicted to crosswords, enjoy playing tennis when Iโ€™m not slinging ink, & am a documentary & podcast fanatic (please recommend your faves below). . I love calligraphy because itโ€™s creative & requires technical precision; it speaks to both sides of my brain. I love to share what Iโ€™ve learned over these many years & on the rare occasion Iโ€™ll teach. . If youโ€™re still with me at this point I thank you. I left insta for a minute because the pressure of creating content got to be too extra for me...Iโ€™m not made to be an โ€œinfluencerโ€ (what even is that anyway? *eyeroll*) Anyhoo, Iโ€™ve returned with a new energy & purpose to encourage you to pick up a pen. If my posts inspire you to start calligraphy in any form, then my job is happily done. . Thanks for reading! ๐ŸŽถ the black skirts | Bollywood

How much do you love the process from 1 to 10?? Tag a friend who will appreciate it! ๐Ÿ˜Š Calligraphy by the hand of @michael_moodie - Finally got around to documenting my messy process. When getting started with my layout I through down tons of pencil lines which help me gauge my options. I then use a fine liner to identify the strongest pencil strokes and outline them to create the skeleton of my piece. Moving to adding weight, I roughly trace over with a brush pen. Key word; roughly. I always take several passes through my work before moving to final design stage. Add weight to your skeleton and critique it before spending your sanity correcting curves. ๐Ÿ”ฅ For this piece I used artezas twi marker. I really enjoyed how snappy the fresh tips were aswell as the thin fine tip side. I think they did the dual tip justice with the mega fine tip as I find the tombow dual brush pens clunky and too fat which led me to having to use microns for any touch ups. Iโ€™d give them a shot if youโ€™re a beginner to moderate skilled letterer. Iโ€™d like to mention that the final piece displayed is a tracing of this sketched process piece. I wanted to focus more on how I got to the design rather than the actual strokes of the final design. If youโ€™d like to see some more videos let me know below! ๐Ÿ”ฅ The best, never rest - #KeepWriting โœ๐Ÿ–‹ ๐Ÿ”ฅ @milen1st
