Western Calligraphy Techniques : Calligraphy Tips on Signatures

And there’s another way of doing names and
that is when the people sign their names. And I love signatures, and this happens to
be something that I did that’s just a color copy of a piece that I did for a baby shower.
And everybody signed so you just leave all this space and everyone signs. We’ll get back
to this idea, but I have to tell you that I just love names. I don’t exactly know why
I love names so much but I do thousands of names every year. And I never get tired of
doing names. And there was a point in time when I needed to do a big show off piece for
a calligraphy show cause that’s what calligraphers do. They show off at calligraphy shows and
you know do something that’s shows all of the different skills that they have. And this
particular year was the turning of the Millennium and I decided to do a piece which I entitled
hot mamas of the Millennium. And so this piece is all about famous women and obviously does
not name all of the famous women of the last millennium. But I really had fun doing this
piece and I consider it rather educational, if not only from my education but for other
women too. And so what you see here are, this is what I would call expressive lettering,
because what I tried to do is to put the names of these famous women in a shape and in a
hand, in a manner that’s somehow reflects my feeling about who they are. So I would
call that expressive lettering and there you have hot mamas of the Millennium.
