Head Boy - Assassination by MShades
Head Boy - Assassination
The Head Boy of our student council said this. Out loud. So I had to write it down. For the record, he's right - no assassinations as of yet.
Ray Bradbury - Impossibility 02 by MShades
Ray Bradbury - Impossibility 02
A student of mine liked this quote and I decided to write it out. After way too long, really. This is actually a second attempt - the first one was nice, but the attribution was all mucked up.
I have a massive bank of quotations, but if you have one that you think would look good in calligraphy, please let me know! I'm always up for something new...

I just wanted to say, your collection of quotes is always fantastic. Nevermind that the calligraphy is flawless, but I admire you for always finding words that are worthy of such beautiful penmanship.

Thanks very much! I've been collecting quotes since I was in high school, (mumblemumble) years ago. Having good source material makes doing calligraphy a lot more fun.

A PENsive party? 
MShades Featured By Owner May 23, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thank you! A PENsive party sounds like my kind of get-together. Quiet, creative... Still, there would have to be copious amounts of booze.
