Of Pen boxes and baby birds

Started reporting in earnest today.


Doing a Word of the Day (#WOTD) from a while back as there isn’t a fresh one up on r/calligraffiti today.

I have an unfinished vector template for this pen box I prototyped at… I think probably Christmas last year.


Intention was to have it laser cut in two versions. One with moorish or celtic calligraphic etched knotwork, one plain. Just one of the many creations I would like to see through to completion. I’ve really let calligraphy practice slide so I’m going to focus on that and I’m pretty sure the pen box will work its way through to the front of the queue in short order.


The currawongs nesting high in the branches outside my classroom window have a big fat fluffy chick in their nest. Bloody impossible to get a decent photo of but rather cute and pretty exciting for the kids.  I’m really hoping I get to see its first flights. It’s in this photo but mostly as a smudge on the left edge of the nest.
