This was the message inside my Christmas card this year. Written with a Kuretake Calligraphy marker, and reduced. The ascender of the final d in ahead, as originally written, sloped too far to the right. This was rectified in Photoshop — first, I selected that portion of the letter, then used Transform/Skew to bring it in line with the slope of the rest of the message. Finally, I cleaned up the d by cloning and erasing parts of the letter.
