While some of us may pride ourselves on successfully crossing our t’s and dotting our i’s with any sort of consistent grace – both figuratively and literally – professional artist and certified Master Penman Jake Weidmann lives for it.
The Denver-based ink master, who is the world’s youngest certified Master Penman by three decades, has been keeping busy working across a variety of different mediums in art and calligraphy and is particularly well-known for his use of flourishing and hand lettering in the context of his art pieces.
As if it needs to be said, receiving a Master Penman certificate through The International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers and Teachers of Handwriting (IAMPETH) isn’t just downright impressive, it’s also proof of next-level patience that would likely drive most any other human insane.
In this short documentary from Uproxx, we get a closer look behind the mindset and physical restraint that goes into crafting the perfect lines. Who knows – maybe you can learn a thing or two about creating more legible callouts?
