13 ho ho ho

  • Writing tool : Speedball steel brush
  • Style of letters : Gothic free-style

I had to really dig to find an image of Santa to go with my “ho ho ho” calligraphy!  This is, in fact, an old stamp from PSE (Personal Stamp Exchange).

You may have guessed that I only wrote the “ho” once, and then duplicated it in PhotoShop. There are always certain letters that I love to write, and the h is one of them. It’s a letter you can have a lot of fun with, adding flourishes to the ascender and/or pulling the last part of the letter down below the baseline. I guess that’s when it starts to become “free-style”!
