Hello from Southern Sydney, this is my first ever blog, and first ever designed alphabet. Thanks Fiona for organising it. I am a member of Southscribes in Sylvania, Sydney and have attended calligraphy classes over 3 years, though I find I'm not very disciplined with the formal scripts. I have admired calligraphy of many styles and the 2012 ALAW set by fellow member Valerie Keevers, she and the other core members of the group are always encouraging and generous with their knowledge.
I will enjoy this challenge to create 2 alphabets, the first one is Occy... Octopus
The 2nd alphabet is proving to be more of a challenge, but I am sure something will come to mind.
