cursive

Mothers… the keeper of all things made of buttons, construction paper, finger paint, cotton balls, popsicle sticks, report cards, ribbons, trophies, and locks of hair.  My mother, lovingly kept most of my art for which I am grateful.  Had she not been the organized hoarder that she is (love you, Ma….) I would not be able to revel in my 3rd grade cursive talent!  Sorry, but I was damn good!  That little 8 yr. old Angel could kill it with some cursive technique.  You can see how exacting I was.  God!  Did I get out a ruler and compass to measure those loops?!!  And those loops!!!  Sooooooo buttery…  The angles!  I don’t even come close to writing like this anymore.  I crave to be this pure again.

josé parlá

Mad respect to artist — José Parlá. For me, his calligraphy style is hypnotizing and magnetic. My handwriting style is not developed to the scale of Parlá’s. His work influences me to explore the potential to where my own art/handwriting/calligraphy can be taken. His works have so much depth from a media perspective, as well as emotionally. There is no restraint when he creates, yet it is evident that each mark and stroke is intentional and meaningful.
