Calligcast #9: Dan Collins on The Creative Path with Matt Olson

[Calligcast = Practicing calligraphy while listening to a podcast]

Podcast: The Creative Path Podcast with Matt Olson
Episode #40: Dan Collins

Tonight I practiced Q-Z (uppercase) of lesson 3 in my Kaitlin style calligraphy course while listening to musician Dan Collins being interviewed on The Creative Path Podcast with Matt Olson—thanks to the following tweet I saw earlier today:
(Yes, I'm not on Facebook but choose to use Twitter. They're different.)

I know Dan from high school and he's good friends with my younger brother, but it's been several years since I've seen him. So it was interesting to hear about his experiences working remotely (as I had been doing these past 2.5 years)—and to get a peek at one musician-creative's path and thoughts, as opposed to the writing-creative scene I'm most often surrounded by.

Calligraphy-wise, this new practice pad is still serving me well. After so many issues writing with white ink on 80lb blue envelopes for my Christmas cards the past two weeks, returning to my black Sumi ink + this paper feels so smooth.
