A Look In My Calligraphy Journal

I love doodles and doodling on my spare time. Back in college I always end up having doodles on my paper and notebooks to pass the time and my few of my classmates and friends would love my doodles back then.

One time, I was browsing the Instagram explore page when I stumbled upon a calligraphy account and thought about giving it a shot since I loved doodling, so why not. I bought my first sketch pad and my first set of brush pens without knowing if I’ll love the thing or what, but obviously I loved doing calligraphy that’s why I am writing this.

My first set of pen was from Prismacolor and actually loved the brush pen. It really had that comfortable feeling when you write simple words with it. I wish I could show you guys some pieces that I have using these pens.

The black pad is where I store all my calligraphy arts and the two pads are stock dotted pads for my Bullet Journal ~

And next I bought a Tombow Brush pens in their primary colors and my Rhodia Dotted pads, no photo of the Rhodia since I forgot I actually had them because I’m saving up the pads. The dotted pad is really a great for markers and brush pens, since it don’t bleed on the back of the page which is actually great for notepads. I would recommend the Tombow Brush pens to those who want to start learning brush calligraphy/faux calligraphy.

Not in the photos: I love using the Tombow Fendenosuke pens which are by far my favorite.

The next thing I know, I’m purchasing my first nib pen and ink. I actually have two nib pens and actually use just one since I find the other one handy and comfortable.

I have still a lot to learn and to practice a lot in calligraphy. I started practicing brush calligraphy everyday, even printed some handwriting or calligraphy worksheets to help me practice, learn more and get use to pens and writing; and the upward and downward strokes of a faux calligraphy or brush calligraphy.

I’m still learning a lot from it but here are some of the pieces I have worked and did in the past weeks and months.

Pens Used: Tombow Fendosauke, Memento Brush pens, Faber-Castell art pens

Tools used: Nib pen and Speedball ink in Super Black

I’ve learned these through online, videos, Pinterest and from these calligraphy bloggers:

And few more accounts on Instagram. So there’s that, a peek of my calligraphy journal. I want to thank the bloggers who commented on my previous blog post and made this calligraphy post happen ~

  2. I used to be very passionate about Calligraphy but then school consumed most of my time, my strokes went dfakjdfdsfks again. Though I tried brush calligraphy, I sucked big time! I enjoyed calligraphy and faux calligraphy more. Also your artworks are great! Keep it up! 🙂
