Calligcast #4: Los Frikis

[Calligcast = Practicing calligraphy while listening to a podcast]

Podcast: Radiolab
Episode: Los Frikis

How a group of 80’s Cuban misfits found rock-and-roll and created a revolution within a revolution, going into exile without ever leaving home. In a collaboration with Radio Ambulante, reporter Luis Trelles bring us the story of punk rock’s arrival in Cuba and a small band of outsiders who sentenced themselves to death and set themselves free. 

Calligraphy notes: Since I leave Montpellier in less than a week, I've already packed away my TPK calligraphy course worksheets, so I wasn't working from any models.

I don't think this practice pad is the best paper (although it's labelled "calligraphy" practice paper), because I the tiniest bit of paper fibers are scraped off on my down strokes, and get stuck at the tip of the nib. Upstrokes are shaky and seem to get stuck on the paper.
