More Ballpoint Spencerian (2009)

... this time on the paper wrapper that comes with my copy of Time magazine every week.  Real Spencerian is done using a flexible, pointed steel nib such as the Hunt Imperial, and with iron gall ink.  This, however, was scribbled with a ballpoint, scanned, and colour-reversed.


  1. You mean you did it for Times magazine??

  2. Sadly not :( I subscribe to Time and it comes wrapped in paper with my address printed on it -- I've often felt it's such a waste, but have now made it a habit to save these and use them to scribbling on.
