    Jazza, to do Calligraphy, you need patience and delicacy. These are not your normal pens and pencils.
    I'm just glad you don't use Glass Pens, you'd break them just by gripping them.

    This freakin inspiration of a man! Jazza, your artwork is amazing *not to mention you can draw and paint in different styles besides your own while I can't even draw in the Simpson style* you can sing, you're an awesome dad *from what I've seen on videos anyway*, you constantly find different things to do and show us *like the making art out of garbage video* and not only that but you keep edging everyone of us forwards, you're hilarious and have a Ridiculously huge heart. Thank you Jazza, your one of the main reasons for me wanting to become a better artist!

    I took an art class for 6 years and we learned a LOT of calligraphy because my art teacher loved adding words and quotes into pieces. Calligraphy was fun until you got that one calligraphy pen that some six year old used before you and the nib is stuck super wide open because the kid pressed down so hard on it or they didn’t clean off the remaining ink so it’s a clumpy, goopy mess. The struggles. 😩😂😂

    I'ḿ 20 years old and I've been doing calligraphy for around 7 years now. From my experience theres one comfort when it comes to showcasing your work. You the artist, see more flaws in your work than the spectator. Small details stick out and draw your attention away from how the it looks as a whole. Your netflix piece was quite good for a first attempt. I wouldn't beat yourself up as much as you did

    Jazza try using brush pens! They produce more modern Calligraphy and are way easier to use! I do Calligraphy and my favourite brush pens are the tombow fudenoske and tombow dual brush pens! SO GOOD! They can also be used for colouring 😃

    here in france, we are forced to use fountain pens and write cursive all the way through middle school. while fountain pen technology has gotten better since when my grandparents had ink pots on the corners of their desks, sadly, cursive and western fonts are made for right handed people, so I've always written bad...
    but at least, the first time I picked up a calligraphy pen, it looked like your third attempt; and not your first !

    I’ve been doing calligraphy since I was about eight. I’ve got a lot better since I started but let me say you were a lot better than me when I started.
    I have a couple of tips for you.
    1).dont press to hard
    2).you have to much ink on your pen
    3).dont stop in the middle of a word
    Other than that your doing amazing 😊

    Calligraphy is a series of strokes strategically placed to form letters.
    You dont form a whole letter in one stroke.
    Never move backwards with the nib.
