I love that there are plenty of calligraphers out there that, like me, are huge college basketball fans. Tonight, the Purdue Boilermakers take on calligrapher Katy Jamison's Saint Mary Gaels. I am hopeful my Boilers can pull off the upset. Katy created her tournament bracket from scratch and hand lettered the entire thing! You can check it out by clicking here. She's also made her blank bracket available to download. Check it out and download it by clicking here. Thanks, Katy! and may the best team win tonight. :)
Last night I was rooting for the South Dakota State Jackrabbits, because calligrapher Marilyn Stirrett's son-in-law is the head coach. It was the Jacks first time to the NCAA tournament. Congratulations to your family Marilyn! There was a time in the second half that I thought they were going to upset Baylor.
I know Jan K. roots for Gonzaga, Jan H. roots for Louisville, Sandy W. roots for I.U., Dana and Martha are Carolina fans, (Martha two-times as a Gator fan), did I forget anyone? Who do you root for?
(I did the original lettering with a Speedball FB 1/2 nib and the outlining with a ruling pen.)
Enjoy the games.
