Vanessa's Portrait  Vanessa Otto, Wien. When the ink kisses the paper, the magic starts ... ✨💦 Happy to answer Handlettering-Design- and Calligraphy Inquiries via mail.

#tbfriday to the #urbansketching workshop with @jenshuebner at the #fabercastell Artist Days in the romantic gardens of Faber Castell Castle. It was my very first try sketching a building, and it turned out sooo very bad, but it was fun, interesting and I got a lot of inputs from Jens to start with maybe a new hobby, when taking a break in a park or waiting for a train; whatever gives me the possibility to look more closely at a building. #thankyoufabercastell for the experience and pointing out something new to me. 💓

Some days end up better than others. What a week! And we only made it half way through. Wishing you #goodvibesonly for the rest of the week. 😘 Find the #letteringprocess in my Instastories. Yes, I finished the #handlettering, even if I smudged right into the second letter. But hey! Is our life perfect? 😉💓 #takeiteasy #mistakeshappen

I have a ton of nice detail shots from the #ArtistDays, but not one photograph with this years group. So here is a #Repost from @faber_castell_br, because this has to be in my gallery. 💓🙏🏻

Don't you find yourself asking this sometimes too? When the brain decisions just don't seem to be the ones that give your heart wings to fly ... I lettered this quote in the train last week from Germany back to Austria. Unfortunately forgot which song it was, where I heard the lyrics.

Behind the scenes, and the secrets of the famous green coated pencil production. Published my impressions from my visit at @fabercastellglobal headquarters in #nuremberg on the blog. 🌈 ✏️ #travelcollagenue #artistdays2017

Finished the Franken-Menu-Lettering with #polychromos yesterday later at night from the previous pic. The wax based coloredpencils give a bit more shine and texture than the waterbased ones.

Lettering in my favorite park in Vienna. Today: a #foodie theme: What to eat in Nuremberg like #3imweggla, #schäufele and many more ...

Practiced a bit on new names last evening, while going through the pics from Nuremberg last week. I guess, I will have to split them in categories. Quiet some nice shots in the pencil factory and academy, where I met all those lovely people mentioned here on the notebook page. #travelcollagenue

🖌I have got a NEW tool, and you will love it too! ❤️ I was introduced to this tiny water tank brush at the Urban Sketching Workshop with @jenshuebner, who designed it with @fabercastellglobal. So great for filling in ink on nibs, because no water is dripping out. The 💦 brush is just as wet as you would need it to be, and the bristles don't get stuck between the tines. And on top easy to clean.

It was just a first try without knowing the product, because it's #notforsale yet. This #whitebrushpen is so smooth, even for a #leftyletterer 💕. Can't wait until it will be sold in stores, because it is so perfect for #blackboard and #chalkboardart. Can you see the soft shades? All that without pushing and pressing. Bare with me, that the lettering is not correctly executed, but it was the only page I tried, and was so excited to share with you the news, that help is out there soon. #thankyoufabercastell 💕

Arrived back home in #Austria, and already miss the group. While the artists from #belgium, #germany🇩🇪, #spain🇪🇸, #england🇬🇧 left friday, the @faber_castell_br group is just starting their way home to #Brazil. Can you imagine that @alefvernonart has to travel back more than 20h after just the few days? An example how priorities can be chosen, and how much @fabercastellglobal means to all of us. It's not about a free product, it's how we are treated as artists and about the quality without sacrifices to humankind and nature. There happened so much more than a sponsored hashtag could probably state. It was a generous #fabercastell_invitation by the family and company to spend some days together, exchange experiences, wishes, possibilities and even fears. Could this snapshot possibly lie? Hope to see you again. 😘 Servus aus Wien!

Can you see the resemblance? These are the role models for todays #grafvonfabercastell Collection. ✏️ Such silver beauties, from the private #historiccollection of the #fabercastell-family. This museum is really something. Whenever you visit #Bavaria, make sure to plan a half day for a production and museums Tour in Stein next to #nuremberg. And on top, the palace garden is so charming in summer, with trees, blooming pink roses and lavender ... 💜🌲🌸🌳🌺💚 pssst ... there is a #factoryshop, and I can tell 😀 that I did some damage to my savings there. Little hint: 🐘🐘🐘🤦‍♀️😍
