Calligraphy Crafternoon

Tablea Cheesecake and my dipping pen are having a swell time
or should i call it an afternoon of calligraphy and sweets...? well regardless of the title, Vins and i definitely enjoyed Alessandra's session of intro to calligraphy. 

we got to Pino / Pipino just in time to ogle at the calligraphy paraphernalia from Scribe. they were so tempting... but we're on a strict budget. after all, i already got a dipping pen, so that's enough for practice. and on to my first attempt at calligraphy.

a twisted gothic alphabet
i never had a beautiful neat penmanship. mine's more like a scrawl. plus the weight of my alloy dipping pen did make my first try a challenge. 

though i'm happy to say i did manage... somewhat.

our beautiful attendance, penned by Fozzy, we're not worthy!
our finished seatworks
some of my favorites
and another
all in all, the experience was very overwhelming and at the same time immensely enjoyable as we got to learn a new craft, something which i can hopefully pass on to my son (to be honest i quite envy French children, they start training writing with a fountain pen at Kindergarten!).

Finished Poppet and a WIP

Poppet, watercolor painting by Bre
finally, i've finished working on Poppet. it's really hard to work with just b&w, thank goodness Poppet is a redhead! but i guess that's the magic of Le Cirque de Reves. and if it did exist, i want to be a reveur, an ultimate fangirl of the circus.

and now here's a sneak-peek at Tsukiko, Le Cirque de Reves' very own contortionist and a former "game" contender

Dark Knight Fever

The Dark Knight Rises nears its premier, and I'm dying to see it! Batman has been one of my favorite superheroes of all time (love his broodiness!), and Chris Nolan has made the storyline very interesting indeed. the cast of his latest installment is very intriguing also, especially since most of them came from his Inception movie.

i'm on a Dark Knight fever these past few days, and been drawing some of the villainesses from the series

Harley Quinn (sorry for the typo there), Mr. J's pet

of course who'd forget Selina Kyle aka Catwoman, Batman's sexiest archnemesis

my alloy dipping pen, photo taken using Instagram

i purchased a dipping pen set online and this weekend my friend, Vins, and I will be attending a calligraphy Crafternoon. i'm so excited to use my dipping pen! i am a complete novice at calligraphy and i was hoping to improve my handwriting also through it. i'll keep you posted on the outcome of our little adventure with this art come next week.

my current obsession

so sorry i haven't been posting much lately. i've been busy with my day job and the first few days of school. i am more active on another platform, though, which is Instagram. i found out that it's a fast and easy way for artists to post their latest (or past) artworks. i've been following more and more artists everyday as i discover them. i also started posting some of my illsutrations and artworks there.

but what i am most obsessed with are the cats and/or dogs of instagram, especially the ones from Japan! i cannot get enough of their cuteness!!!

care to follow me? search for eabrea. :)
