Thank you. This was so much more helpful than many of the videos out there. It's hard enough being a leftie doing this, without having to go through dozens of videos that only tell you how to dip ink but not how to actually write! Very clear instructions, exactly what I needed. Thank you for taking the time to make and share this!

Maam what type of pen are you using and is it 2mm ? kindly highlight on correct use of pens in calligraphy .. it will be extremly helpful. thank you and indeed it was useful video. 😊

It looks to me like a sketch pen. She says it's a 3mm Pigma Calligrapher. I don't think we have these in general stationary stores in India, probably need to go to speciality stores...

Thank you for your wonderful videos. I will use them to practice with. I tried to download the 3mm practice paper but it seems that the link doesn't work anymore. Is there another way to get this practice paper?

Just found this as become interested.  However, I cannot find an on-line store to purchase those pens.  Can you help?'
Kai (1 year ago)
I really enjoy these videos! I wish you all would do this for each size Calligrapher! I know it’s probably the same motions, but it would be nice to see what the end result should look like with the other sizes! :)

Thank you so much for this video, I started italic writing today and your tutorial is very clear so I will stick with this one and not get confused with watching all the others
Michael Enochs (1 year ago)
As a guitar player, I feel apathetic towards calligraphy because I remember how my fingers wouldn't do what I wanted them to do. You'd think 12 years in grade school would increase muscle memory and maybe it's helped, but I understand how hard this is going to be. Relearning how to write, ughhhh. I want to learn it but I don't want to work on it. Wish I could just plug myself into matrix and learn this. Well, here we go again... Thanks for the video!

Grand Eagle (1 year ago)
Its really nice the tutorial but, when I try to write with your caligrapher, its very hard to try write with it: the ink doesnt flow properly, the calygrapher stop in the paper and the letters are incomplete. With a little o more pressure its the same situation.

And can I get any extra tip for writing it because i think there will be some difficulty because i am a left handed? And thank you sooo much for your help Joanne!

David Williams...... I didn’t know they had different ones for us that are left handed. I’ll research and get those as well. Thanks!
KJV Only (2 months ago)
I am a leftie! Yes, it is different. You will find it easier after spending a couple of hours practicing with the way you write. Then go from there to follow her. Just received my pack of pens today and after about 6 hours, I am getting use to it.
kieto k (1 year ago)
David Williams hi there, I'm just starting with the italic but i think the "v" and the "w" must to be written in a diferent way, anyway i just started two months ago and i found this vídeo very very useful. If you wanna have a lettering or calligraphy friend just let me know.
David Williams (1 year ago)
Hi, Im just starting our and am a leftie also. I have found so far that I need to do things a little differently. Only another leftie understands our problems. I have ordered some left handed pens - I hope they help.

saiyajedi (2 years ago)
She's obviously very good at what she does, but it bugs me that the ascenders have entry strokes from the left. That may be fine in isolation, but when you're coming off a previous letter, it's natural for the pen to come up and loop around from the right (which is why traditional italic has ascenders that start from that direction). This version looks nice, but it's kind of antithetical to the notion of italic as a _cursive_ script (i.e., dictated by the motion of a moving pen).
