One of the first illuminated calligraphy pieces I did is this Psalm 1 for my friend. It is executed in marker entirely. Sorry about the poor quality of the photograph.
Sometimes as Christmas presents for family, I do a calligraphy piece. This one is a wood board originally intended as a picture frame, on which I painted in acrylics and then wrote with a calligraphy marker. My calligraphy isn’t usually perfectly even but then again, I taught myself and rarely practice it unless I have a commission or want to get a present done in time for an occasion.
