The #UniqueLA Holiday Market is coming Dec 2-3!! 😆 Mark your calendars cause this is gonna be the biggest one yet with over 400 vendors selling unique shit - like this hologram glitter ornament personalized by yours truly! 🙋🏻 I'll also be selling my signature sweary cards and even some SPECIAL calligraphy kits to go with my Modern Calligraphy 101 online course!! 😁 So come say hi and get all your holiday shopping done and support some badass creative entrepreneurs at the same time 🙌 @uniquemarkets
Wow, found the practice pages from my very first calligraphy workshop, two years ago with the amazingly talented @angeliqueink 😃 This is why I tell all my students that their letters will probably look like crap at first 😂 I mean, how could they not when you're using a weird pointy steel nib for the first time? But, damn, just a little bit of consistent practice can take you so far!! If there's anyone out there who thinks you can't learn calligraphy, I'm here to tell you that you abso-fuckin-lutely can!! 😆👍👍👍 It won't be beautiful right away, but if you keep yourself inspired and practicing, you'll just get better and better, baby 🙌
Want six weeks of guided, inspired, FUN calligraphy learning? Check the link in my bio! 😉
Because a simple "oh shit!" is not enough for today 😆 In less than two weeks, my online course opens for enrollment!!! I've got some cool stuff planned (including some killer freebies) so if you're not on the waitlist, get on that shit!! ✨✨Link is in my bio✨✨
Also... thanksgiving is in three days??? When the fuck did that happen? 😂
Also also... please excuse the Darth Vaderette style breathing going on in this video. I woke up with a little stuffy nose - hopefully I can vitamin-c that shit away!
Hey there! I'm Shinah, the diabolical mastermind (or goofy dog lover, whichever floats your boat 😉) behind Crooked Calligraphy. Here's some random facts about me for this #FridayIntroduction👇
1️⃣I've seen all the episodes of Star Trek TNG and Deep Space Nine #nerdalert
2️⃣I have a (useless) black belt in Tae Kwon Do and my dad legit looks like Mr. Miyagi 🥋
3️⃣ I'm one of the first 10,000 Facebook users on the whole planet 🌎
4️⃣ I collect owl-shaped things, but only if the owl has an interesting expression on its face - see the earrings I'm wearing in this photo? 🦉
✨✨✨That's all for now! BUT BEFORE YOU GO...Tell me your first name and one interesting fact about you in the comments 👇 and I may calligraphy your name in my InstaStories this afternoon!! 😆🙌
Be kind - Look around for inspiration not comparison - Practice your craft because it fulfills you 👈 A message I can get behind. I'm so thankful to my little corner of the handlettering community for being so amazingly uplifting, inspiring and positive 😆🙌 Fuck yeah to the girly letters and the badass babes who create them! #fuckyeahgirlyletters @fuckyeahgirlyletters
Cuisine before Peen? Or Peen before Cuisine? And if you don't know what "Peen" is referring to yet, here's a hint 🍆😂
I'm super excited to share this design I was commissioned to create by @homsweethom to celebrate the launch of her new weird, hilarious, lovable cooking blog @peencuisine 🍆🍆🍆 It celebrates the two best things in life 😉
When I first heard her idea for this, I was like huh? 🤔 But then I saw it and its irreverent and fresh and kinda magical 😍 So, if you're curious what COCKPRESE salad is, go check out @peencuisine immediately!
Does learning calligraphy seem a little daunting? 😕😨😱Well how about learning to draw just one little "c"? 😯🙂😃 Get this guy down and -BOOM- you've got 25% of the alphabet under your belt!! 😆
That's how I break it down in my Modern Calligraphy 101 online course! 🙌 It's opening for enrollment December 2017 so mark your calendars and get on the waitlist to hear about the lowest price it'll ever be offered! Link is in my bio - see you there 😉 #moderncalligraphy101
