The long road...

After playing with 2mm wide calligraphic pen and ink for a while, I quickly sketched these letters in Illustrator with a preset calligraphy brush (30degrees) and then started copy and paste, cut and redraw.

This happened after reading the great essay titled Problems Relating to the Translation of a Drawn Letterform to a Digital Typeface written by Eduardo Berliner - you can download it from here too...

I feel these glyphs have much more power and life than any previous one which was either merely constructed in Illustrator or based on drawings by pen.

Now i keep practicing with calligraphy and look forward even more improved letters - and I hope, a full set of characters .
