King Blotto III  I’m a calligrapher who is inspired by fashion, mythology, and visual art.

Tested out the Luthis flat pen this weekend. The design is simple and holds a ton of ink. It’s a touch harder to keep your strokes crisp because of the eager ink delivery, but the payoff is super dramatic shading, and who doesn’t love that? Juicy ink forever.👌🏼

"MERINGUE"

Rewatching @britishbakeoff series 4 and it's every bit as good the second time around. Not gonna lie, it's a dream of mine to calligraphy a sheet cake with a piping bag. •

"RETURN"

Super excited to return to posting after a long IG break! In addition to script videos, I want to share more about my creative process, works-in-progress, and snapshots of my tools and designs. If you have any ideas for words or content, feel free to let me know!

Super satisfying to hear this Brause Steno nib scritch-scratch as it weaves its inky swirls on the page! The Pelikan 4001 Turquoise ink is an absolute joy, shading from pale blue to vibrant cerulean.

Somehow found myself googling images of snails today. Realized they're pretty cute with their sporty little shells and all. If you have any snail stories, I'd love to hear them. 🐌

Super excited to be testing out the KB3 Starter Kit in collaboration with @johnnealbookseller -- we're going to celebrate the product launch by giving a kit to one of you! Details coming soon! ❤

The joys of writing aren't only in calligraphy. Simple handwriting, doodling, and other lettering is a wonderful way to relax, rejuvenate, and refresh!
