Wow! What a great time we had on Saturday at the Illustrators Schmooze in OC! Master calligrapher, Janet Takahashi, demonstrated the technique of calligraphy and gave a brief history on the beautiful writing craft. Then, with pens in hand, she led the group in a hands-on calligraphy experience. What a treat! We had fun playing with all the writing toys and practicing the French Roundhand style. She makes it look so easy! We also enjoyed seeing how she incorporates calligraphy into her delightful illustrations.
Thanks, Janet, for sharing your time and talent with us!
