The first time I saw the word “calligraphy” in my local dictionary, I was taken aback.
What was it?
I didn’t have much in common with the person who wrote it.
I was a first-year graduate student in the art of calligraphing, and it seemed to me that the definition of artistry was to “make something that looks like something but is not.”
I was fascinated by the idea of making a thing that is beautiful in its imperfection and beauty, but not necessarily perfect.
Calligraphy was my hobby for many years, and I still enjoy it today.
I had been drawing calligraphics for more than a decade, and although I was studying the technique and creating a full-blown design, I hadn’t really thought much about what it was that I was doing.
At that point, I had never really done anything in particular.
When I got a call from my friend who worked at an art studio in NYC and told me that she was a student in calligraphism, I knew that I wanted to get involved.
The only thing I knew was that the name of the studio made me feel like I had to do something.
I needed to learn more.
I contacted the studio and asked about an online course.
They offered me a place to study and they offered me an invitation to the studio for an art workshop.
It was a chance to learn and to learn from others, and so I signed up.
I got a Skype call from the studio’s art director who was excited and said that she’d love to meet me.
I had the feeling that she had something interesting to say, so we started chatting.
After a while, she introduced me to a colleague of hers.
She asked me what I was interested in and said she would be happy to put me in touch with someone to help me with my design.
I was thrilled to meet this person, but as soon as she started explaining my interest in calligraphic calligraphies, I felt intimidated.
She had never studied calligraphys and I had no idea what I wanted.
I explained to her my love of drawing, but it was not until the day of the workshop that I finally got a good feel for the artistry that I had been searching for.
I sat down with my colleague, her partner, and the instructor.
After we got through introductions, we started working together.
They introduced me and the studio to the rest of the students, and they gave me a tour of the space.
I felt like I was going to be a part of something great.
I got the sense that I would be the perfect artist for this studio, and that they had a great idea for me.
They invited me to take a class with them in the following week.
It was a wonderful experience for me to learn the craft and to become part of a group of talented and talented artists.
But, for me, it was also a chance for me and my art to grow, which I was happy to do.
I learned that drawing is art and that I am not the only one to draw and that everyone can learn the art.
I also learned to appreciate the different ways that different people make their work.
I grew to enjoy drawing as a hobby and a way to express myself.
After this first class, I went on to learn several more online classes from the same studio.
In between, I found a new job that was similar to what I had planned for the studio, but in a completely different field.
My passion for drawing grew stronger and stronger, and my desire to get a real-world job as a professional artist increased.
I started drawing professionally in 2012 and started working in the fashion industry as a full time freelance artist in 2017.
