IAMPETH: Day 5Posted: August 11, 2012
What would a child prodigy be called if he was no longer a child? Probably Jake Weidmann…. The calligraphy prodigy.
Today I took The Fundamentals of Flourishing with Jake. Not only is Jake a great teacher and an amazing artist but also a person of outstanding character.
Jake challenged us all today with his beautiful flourishes. He made extremely difficult moves look simple. Today was the first time that I have ever sat down to work solely on my flourishes and I had more fun than I expected!
Below are some samples that I drew in class. I used an oblique pen holder, a Nikko G nib and McCaffery’s Ink.
