Distinctive Inscriptions Calligraphy

How did a football- loving chemist become a calligrapher? Ashantai Yungai tells us!

                     

“You can’t have handwriting like this son! Come on in here and practice!” That was my father’s assessment and admonition of my terrible handwriting when I was in third grade (who doesn’t have terrible handwriting in third grade?!).  I was most inclined to play football after school, homework, and chores. So my father made a deal with me: “No penmanship practice, no football,” he said nonchalantly.  (It should be noted that my father also thought that football was a “barbaric sport”). What’s a nine-year-old kid who absolutely loved football to do? I accepted his deal, only to continue playing football.  I thus performed the perfunctory assignment to get back to my real love!  From 3rd to 5th grade I was practicing penmanship for 30 minutes a day, five days a week.

Over the years, my penmanship developed into a unique style.  Acquaintances would often ask, “How did you get such beautiful handwriting?” I would reply with the above story. I was often asked to write quotes and statements for friends.

Since then my passion for calligraphy has literally flourished.  I enjoy writing names and quotes in exquisite lettering styles and flourishings.  While I thrill in doing calligraphy in any manner, I especially enjoy doing both place cards and envelopes.

I have developed a flair for hand-lettering in a variety of styles, from whimsical to formal to the fancy flourish.  All of my lettering styles are done by hand with brass dip nibs and ink or water-based pigments such as gouache. I produce quality work and take pride in my keen sense of attention to detail and providing exquisite art. It is pleasing to receive compliments on my work and more pleasing to see the ebullience on the faces of clients when they receive their completed projects.  My desire is to create for you an exquisite collage of calligraphy in all facets.”
