It was on hearing this serinerant slogan on the radio for the umpteenth time that I decided on my calligraphic occupation of confinement. Most of my colleagues are involved in “challenges” and my gregarious instinct being what it is (.i.e non-existent), I had to find my own way. So I compose from advertising slogans, one maxim a day. Here is my production for the moment. You’ll tell me that it’s nonsense and I’ll tell you that you’re absolutely right 🙂
Romantic writers are good. Physics is good too! First item in what I hope will be a long series, with Schrödinger to start with.
I’m quite happy with the variations on the Greek letters as well as the ², not to mention the () and the +.
I’m going to take out my college physics books to calligraphy some more equations, it’s quite fun, especially to add a legend. This time I did it in English, the next one might be in French, German or Latin, I still hesitate.
The winter sun is sometimes annoying when I work in my workshop, so my wife made me a curtain. But I can’t leave a fabric of this surface untouched! I have to scribble on it! And as I didn’t know which text to use, I fell back on pangrams in several languages. The advantage is that it will give my trainees ideas when they take calligraphy classes in the workshop and don’t know what to write. I’m only at the beginning, I started with a pangram in English and in NEULAND.
I continued with a German version in Gothic fraktur…
A beautiful text by Colette on the act of writing from La Vagabonde. It’s only a fragment, she talks about it in different ways, but it’s the one that caught my attention the most. Who knows, maybe I’ll calligraphy the rest another day?
I was very influenced by Rudolf Koch in this composition, first with the title in NEULAND, then with the gothic script, inspired by the one found in his book of signs.
And, to contrast, I have chosen a less “violent” humanistic script for the second part of the text.
