I tend to get some of the same questions a lot, most of these come from Instagram but sometimes they also arrive via E-Mail.
Do you have any tips on getting started in Calligraphy?
I actually have a full series called Calligraphy 101 the link will bring you to the overview page and show you the most recent one first, but each of the posts has a little navigator at the top so you’ll be able to read them in order. The series is still being written, so it’ll hopefully grow to be a complete guide one day.
How does one get started with iPad Lettering?
There’s a blogpost on that as well.
What Setup do you use for filming?
I made a post on this a while ago, some of this has changed by now, until I have time to write an updated post: I use a Huawei Mate 20 Pro and the Default Camera App to film, as well as inShot (I payed to remove the watermark) for editing. If I have to do some more complex editing I will use Adobe Premiere Pro on Desktop and sometimes I’ll dig out my Sony a7II for my macro shots. Whenever I gotta process some iPad Screen Recording I use the Perfect Video App to speed up and edit. Still using my Fotopro/Rollei tripod that I love.
How long have you been lettering?
I’ve started brush lettering 30. December 2015 and decided to look into calligraphy a couple months later, but I only really got into Calligraphy at around October 2016.
Am I allowed to share your work?
Yes, as long as proper credit is given I am fine with sharing of my work.
Can you write my name?
Yes and no. I will write names from time to time, I will always ask for requests on my Instagram Feed or in the stories, I do however not write names for people sending me messages asking, because I just don’t have the time for this.
Do you read your DM’s?
I try really hard to read as many DMs as I can, but because I have a very busy schedule with my full time job, and Calligraphy my DM requests have lost a bit of priority because I rather want to focus on creating good content and resources and work through E-Mails. So if you really want to reach me urgently, send me an E-Mail. I will get to 99% of my E-Mails.
Can we work together?
If you have any idea for a project or collaboration just drop me an E-Mail through my contact form and I’ll get back to you asap.
