Today I did a little calligraphy on Heather Gall's artwork, a poem by Jill Morris. The paper was 300gsm cold press and a little difficult to write on considering the damp. I did however have some modicum of success. The layout and punctuation was rigidly dictated so I couldn't change the layout to something a little more pleasing. The artwork is gorgeous so I thought I would share it with you.

Yes CJ, Heather's work is beautiful. She is a children's book illustrator as the painting suggests almost.
