My inspiration came from calligraphy workshop with Martin Jackson. I love to feel and see how natural the ink pen flows on a paper following the same directions for centuries. For this DIY alphabet project I used Simple Basic Italic letterforms and explored the other then the paper media – the water. I let the ink be free in the water reservoir and photographed the shapes it made.
