Italic Practice (2010)
I often practise my calligraphy while listening to the BBC news or before going to bed — like cooking, it can be incredibly therapeutic. Writing on old newspapers (on pages not covered with too many pictures) allows one to cover acres of paper without feeling too guilty about deforestation. I usually write out whatever words I hear on the radio or spy on the pages on which I’m scribbling — or I make up words containing letters which I wish to improve or refine, for example c, o, r and g, which at the moment I’m trying to understand better.
