49: Split Italic

The split pen lets you take any broad-pen alphabet into a new dimension.  Here you see the simplest style that every calligrapher learns, take on a new life as Split Italic. I like to fill a few words with two colors of ink such as lime and aqua, or red and orange. 
Depending on what kind and size of split pen you use, you may need to go back and tidy up some of the joins and intersections with one side of the pen or a narrow pen.

  1. I like this a lot! I haven't done much work with split-nibs but this makes me want to try.
