More wordplay using Zig markers and colored pencil. The secret behind making a successful rolling type word like this is to make the first and last letters on the same plane. Otherwise it will appear to be headed up or downhill. Seems like there are a lot of secrets to calligraphy and part of the fun of learning is to find out all these secrets.

David, this looks like a lot of fun. I'm playing with some new colored pencils myself (Derwent Coloursoft) but have also been doing a lot with Prismacolors for comparison (creamier, waxier, more buildup).

Beautiful blog!
