30 Day Calligraphy Challenge

Day 27: Favourite place (real or fictional)

Garak is the best bread since slices fight me.

But seriously every time on Deep Space 9 they cut to a shot of Garak’s shop I’d be ‘ahhhhmigawd’ because there was pretty space clothes everywhere and you didn’t know what was going to happen. Was someone going to get murdered? Threathened? Shady deals? Or like, was there just a ballgown fitting relevant to the plot that was going down?

Day 25: Another ‘I am’ inspirational message to myself.

I am nearly done this challenge omg. It’s been a lot of fun, but it’s getting to the point now where I’ll be happy when calligraphy isn’t a part of my daily routine.

Day 23: Favourite band name

Anamanaguchi makes some amazing fun chiptunes, they’re a good place to start if you’re new to the bleep bloops.

Ahhhhhhmigawd it came! Finally found a Canadian online retailer for fountain pens, the shipping prices for sites based in the US made me want to cry.

Look at that packaging for the ink bottles. They did not mess around. Also they don’t trust Canada Post.

Big ticket items are the Lamy fountain pen and the pink and oxblood ink. The needles are for refilling the pens, way cheaper than buying refills and much cleaner than messing with converters.

Got a 3.8 parallel pen, which I suspect will be the ‘baby bear’ fit of calligraphy pens, meaning it will be juuuuuuust right.
