calligraphy 101: uppercase

This is a direct follow-up to part one of calligraphy! This time, we’re focusing on uppercase.

There are a lot of different ways to write uppercase calligraphy letters. Some can be super fancy, with lots of curls and flourishes. Some are a lot more simple, and look a lot more like printing than handwriting. I use a mix of both, as you can probably tell from the photo above.

In a similar way to the lowercase letters, all the down strokes should be thick, and all the up strokes should be thin. This way you get letters that are really dynamic looking.

Then, all you need is practice, practice, practice!
