Conference Video from Celebration 2003

Thanks to Barb Qualley of the Warmland Calligraphers for passing on this link.  I hadn't seen this video and it's a very good representation of what goes on.  The conferences are eye candy overload!

Most of the instructors interviewed teach regularly and are the top of the calligraphic heap!  I loved Diane von Arx Anderson's comment at about 8:40 about style - I happens on its own when you're learning the traditional forms.  So true.  And my addition: Style is part of your genetic, cultural and historical makeup and is uniquely yours.

I had to look for the banner that has my lettering on it, but didn't see it!  I might not be able to go to the conferences, but my lettering does!
