183 Gothic Kewpies

Just for the fun of it, and to help everyone keep cool, this week's blog will feature penguins.  The creature teachers were drawn by my daughter Zoe Friend, an art student then and now a working sculptor.  
These penguins help the beginner understand Gothic in my basic book Learn Calligraphy.  Long ago I began to see the resemblance between Gothic letters and groups of stiff, black-coated penguins.  Now I can't un-see it.  
You can turn your letters into Gothic Kewpiesa by adding little curlicues to their hairdos.  Use a small pen after you have finished lettering with a wide pen.
