Whiteboard Writing (2009)

A quote by Thomas Paine, written on a whiteboard with two round-point markers banded together.  As you can see, it’s not easy to write straight at this size (x-height approx. 15 centimetres or 6 inches) without the help of guidelines! 

When doing calligraphy workshops I usually project guidelines (on a PowerPoint slide) onto the board using a projector, taking care to ensure that the slide is quite dark (e.g. grey) so it doesn’t dazzle the audience.  This was written as I was winding down after an English grammar class that ended late in the day.


  1. Wow~ I so miss that.. Haha!! Calligraphy workshop was really fun.. Learnt to love calligraphy back then.. ^.^

  2. I'm looking forward to my March 22 workshop!

    I'll probably do a bit more demonstrating this time than teaching, as it's what people seem to enjoy more ...

  3. Yep I agree.. You do such a good job.. =D Oh.. 22nd March.. just 1 month into my TP.. Haha!! Long way to go.. heehee!
