It’s been a while since I posted about calligraphy. I got busy with school and The Pen Meet. Now, I’m excited to tell you that I have a surprise for you. Here are some practice sheets for both lefties and righties. 🏽
Drills & Sheets
In preparation for The Pen Meet, I decided to give time to prepare drills and sheets with the MQ trademark. I wanted to share something from my experiences as well. Personally, I made time to make this, compile it into printable files.
There have been stories or myths that would say lefties and calligraphy do not mesh. Even one myth says that lefties cannot do calligraphy. Alongside this, I searched for lefties who practice the craft and immediately pushed myself. I got inspired after seeing their wonderful works!
My decision to create these drills and sheets was really made when I heard from Sab that hers were here original. That got me thinking, why would I share something that’s not mine? That does not go along with what I believe in life. To be honest, law school has influenced a lot on this.
Drills Sheets for Lefties
I am a leftie and proud of it! There have been posts lurking on the internet about leftie struggles, and I won’t deny the fact that those are true. Very true! 😞
From the spring notebooks to the smudges, those are true. We even angle the papers we are writing on, so it would be more comfortable to us. Plus, another struggle for lefties (and calligraphy) is that if you are an overwriter or an underwriter. So in short, the struggle is real!
Not only that I have had many struggles while practicing, but I met also people who have been practicing the craft. Honestly, they are spectacular! Who said lefties can’t do calligraphy?
I’ve met friends from Type Kita: Pass on the Passion who are lefties and seriously, they are markedly better than me when it comes to brush calligraphy and watercolor works.
So, since I want to pass it on as well, that ignited me to create drills, additional practice strokes and sheets that would help others in their journeys as well. I told myself that during The Pen Meet will be the first time that it will be utilized, and I’m just so happy! Seeing people using the sheets made my heart skip a beat. 💙
Honestly, that’s me sharing my passion to fellow enthusiasts and aspirants as well!
