I was in a drawing tools shop with my daughter the other day.
That’s where I spotted a set of calligraphy brushes. And couldn’t help myself from buying a few. Not in the least hindered by a complete lack of competence on the subject, as the saying goes.

Back home, I set myself to work. The result was a set of characters that have every imaginable irregularity. Things aren’t usually as simple as the youtube instruction videos seem to suggest.
I mean, after this experience, I’m in awe about how good some of these people actually are.

Nevertheless, I’ve always enjoyed writing Chinese characters, so I do give myself a fair chance of really making something out of this.
I’ll post a picture of my writing when I’m not too embarrassed about it.
