Yves Leterme  Calligrapher - scribbler - image-maker - traveling and online teacher - lettering artist from Bruges, Belgium.

This is where I spend a good part of the day critiquing Trajan homework. As you can see, I only have to look up from my screen to see the impeccable Trajans of John Stevens. It’s hanging there now for more than 12 years and I can’t think of anything else that has been more inspiring and helpful to me. As it happens, John aka @calligraphile is selling originals like this one to anyone with the good sense to order one. Do yourself this favor, folks, and contact him directly (there’s a link on his IG account) #iftheresonethingyouwontregret #trajansonline #somethingtodrooloverforyears #priceless

Ah please, don’t give me that excuse that you couldn’t practice your Trajans because you needed to cook a Thanksgiving dinner! Look at this... serifs, fillets and all. And I assume quite tasty too. Thank you, Marie Hornback, for setting an example here. #trajansonline #trajansrule #twobirdsonestone

Some weeks ago, a nice, talented young man by the name of Klaas De Buysser came to my house to film me in my habitat. This is the fabulous result. Needless to say, I am beyond happy with it, so I owe him a big thank you and I’m also indebted to the people from @handmadeinbrugge who commissioned him to make such a video of several Brugean artisans. Check them out! And please share. #handmadeinbrugge #calligraphy #makesmefeellikeanartist #brugge #bruges #artsandcrafts

Truly, for a teacher, there’s nothing more energizing than to see how your students dive enthusiastically into whatever it is you’re teaching, and to see how they get rewarded for their efforts. Again I’m blessed with a group of hard working and attentive students. Go to #trajansonline to follow their adventures or better still, join us while you still can - two more days before we close registration. #soproudofthem #feelingprivileged #onlinecourses #happyteacher

You wish you could listen in on that conversation so as to improve yourself? Well, that’s exactly what our forum of the online course is for. Walk with me while I make my round in class and look over my shoulder as I explain and critique all students’ work. We start tomorrow, but as always, we’ll give you a few more days to sign up - don’t postpone any longer though. #onlineclass #thebenefitsofonlineteaching #trajansonline #personaltrainer #learnfromeachother
