Everything Old Is New Again

Leave a Comment

I just spent twi days with my calligraphy mentor, Ward Dunham, and so, on the upside we had a fantastic time, enjoyed each other’s company, watched “Ironclad” and the “Concert for George,” and toured Half-Moon Bay, all of which is outstanding. On the down side, he gave me four pages of notes on “Fuck the Po lice,” that’s one page of notes per syllable, shredded it, and now I feel like I have to re-learn the entire alphabet. …I say that’s a downside, really, all of it is upside.

I Aim To Misbehave

Y’all got on this boat for different reasons, but y’all come to the same place. So now I’m asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything, I know this – they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, ten? They’ll swing back to the belief that they can make people… better. And I do not hold to that. So no more runnin’. Available in my etsy store. Click Here

Pigfarts is on Mars

I have been bad about calligraphy lately and have been meaning to do this, so, it’s here now. I’m out of practice.

Fuck Da Po lice

Leave a Comment

This is another one that, while not particularly nerdy, just struck me as son wonderfully incongruous. Plus I got to work on that majuscule “F” and this was good spacing practice. It’s in my etsy store which you can reach by clicking here and someone included it in a treasury supporting the march on Wall Street.

Nice Ass

Special thanks to the callipygian Erin Henry for suggesting this word to me. Initially I was going to make this digitally as a part of my favorite words series, but I felt that I could calligraph it. So I did. If you like it, it’s in my etsy store.

Get Your Ass To Mars

Leave a Comment

I don’t know why, but this just popped into my head and I figured I’d make a calligraphy piece. It’s in blackletter textura quadrata. I didn’t do anything particularly clever with it, though I like the implied link between the T and the Y and, obviously, “Mars” is in red because it’s, duh, the red planet. I put it in my etsy store which you can get to by clicking here

Some Atheist Calligraphy

Hey, Chris, I’m trying to increase my productivity and this is one of the calligraphy pieces I made recently. As you know, I believe that the bulk of available calligraphy is either an Irish proverb or a quote from the Bible and I have a problem with that. I’m trying to do my part in the name of variety, so I put this up in my etsy store.

Call No Man Happy

Hey, Chris, I made this last night. It only took me 15 minutes to write it, but the ink took 30 minutes to dry because it’s been so humid. I was noting that while it is from Herodotus, I think a lot of people probably know it from “American Gods.” Anyways, I put it in my store.

OK, Chris, this is my thing-a-day from yesterday. I did it before work. So, lots of people keep favoriting this on etsy, so, I figured it was time to make another one. After I mentioned this in an etsy conversation, someone said I should make “herp.” So, I did. They are both in my etsy store. DERP and HERP I really like the swash on the H and, piece of trivia for you, I had to do a second draft of “derp” because the first one I made the “p” too large.

In A Handful of Dust

In A Handful of Dust

So, I’ve decided to attempt a “thing-a-day.” Not always calligraphy, but, I want to actually make a new thing of some kind every day. So, sometimes that will totally be calligraphy, sometimes it will be a youtube video, sometimes I’ll write something, sometimes I might draw something… you know… something. I don’t know how long I’ll do this for, but, I’m gonna do my best. This is my “Thing-A-Day” for today: Now, I obviously put that in my etsy store, but I have more to say about it. Firstly, TS Eliot is my favorite poet and everyone should at least [...]

I made this the other day, not sure how I feel about the border on it. This is a good example of me predilection for contrast in comedy. At least to me it is. And that predisposition goes further than you might think. I mean, assuming that what you think is “haha, tits or GTFO is lewd and forceful and calligraphy is elegant,” which is true, but in my mind it goes further than that. Like, were you to purchase this piece from my etsy store I think it would be important for you to know that this isn’t just calligaphy, it’s an [...]
