learning uncials by Vivian Ma

I didn't get assigned any specific homework so I wrote part of the Lay of Lúthien by Tolkien (Aragorn recites it for the hobbits the night of Frodo's stabbing in the Fellowship). I am completely serious about mastering uncials so I can master Elvish eventually.

calligraphy 2 final by Vivian Ma

This semester I learned italic, and for my final wrote a book of multicolored pages using msmensen's "19 Things I Wish Someone Had Told Me Before I Turned 20 so I Didn’t Waste a Decade" as text. It's amazing using white gouache on colored paper.
