Artsycraftsy experiment: uncola pen!

I saw this type of pen from Fozzy’s demo at the type kita event. She said you could make one using a cola can, but looking at thr instructions online made me fear for my hands.
So I improvised and made one using old negatives and a popsicle stick!


I love how you can make thin and thick lines from it. Will make more in different sizes later. 🙂


Teach yo’self: Relearning calligraphy

I’ve been doing some calligraphy drills recently because I was so inspired by the awesome calligraphers I met at the typekita 2 event. My goal is to fill up a page with drills for 30 days.
Day 1:

Day 3: I tried writing after doing drills on the third day and I think doing the drills really work! Not perfect, but a start;

Wish me luck! What have you been up to lately?

Artsycraftsy exploration: Type Kita 2

Because I had so much fun at the last type kita event (and I’m trying to learn typography), I’m attending both days in this year’s type kita exhibit!  🙂
The first day was yesterday–I went with Jaycee and Almi and was so happy I got to watch Kay Aranzanso’s live chalk lettering and The Fozzy Book and La Bella Scrittura’s calligraphy demo–both are in my bucket list, so yay!



I don’t want to spoil the surprise, it’s best to check it out for yourself today! 🙂 Here’s my loot:


Here’s my fave pic taken by Fran with the Ang Ink/Speculiars peeps. I spilled some water on my shorts during the calligraphy workshop because I’m graceful like that haha and it looks like I peed on myself with excitement Lol:


Best. Day. Ever!

See them live today! 🙂
