Openinkstand Art & Calligraphy

This is one of the more intensive but fun projects I was working on. It is 70 sayings collected by a family about their matriarch for her 70th birthday. Some of the sayings are very sweet (“You have an amazing outlook on life”), and some are cute (“You take us out for icecream”). Sometimes I wish I could be there when my commissioners present the calligraphy to their intended.
