studentofrhythm's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Literature
United States
Aspiring novelist since adolescence. Currently working on a speculative fiction novel (low-tech sci-fi? Or fantasy without magic?). I have also drafted a fantasy novel that I hope to revise some day. And I like to do NaNoWriMo too.

I am also a drummer and amateur songwriter/composer. Besides several songs in progress I've composed some folk tunes from my fictional world, but this isn't a music site. I also have some conlang grammars and glossaries in development, as well as several scripts. I'm also working on my calligraphic skill. I'll do original custom-made pieces of calligraphy for 50 cents per word, sending you the actual piece of paper. If interested, contact me here or thru my Etsy shop, linked below.

The words to a song I wrote about four years ago, done in Caroline minuscule with a hand-cut quill and thickened India ink on Strathmore calligraphy paper (laid texture).

As always, use this image however you want.  I hope it won't be too long before I can offer a recording of the full song for people to hear.

Hi, your calligraphy is very nice !
Why not trying more complicated calligraphies (with colours, decorations...) ?

Thanks!  I've lost confidence in my ability to draw even for calligraphic embellishments and haven't got it back yet.  I can only do one script or two passably well, have little money to buy other colors of ink and little time to steal to keep practicing.  But I would like to do illuminations some day.

I have some metal nibbed and felt-tipped pens made for calligraphy but so far have been loath to use them, preferring to hold myself to the capabilities and limitations of organic quills (or reeds if I ever get any).
