ECS April 2021 Challenge "Magic"

Date Created: April 15, 2021

Edmonton Calligraphy Society puts out a challenge to it's members every month. This month is take a quote and do it 3 ways... 

The top left image started out as my homework for Barbara Close's Italic class. Then I saw something a friend did and had to do something similar... and then I was in a mood to do something on black.

I noticed there's a slight error in one of the pieces... c'est la vie.

Quote: If you take any activity , any art, any discipline, any skill, take it and push it as far as it will go; push it beyond where it has ever been before, push it to the wildest edge of edges, then you force it to the realm of MAGIC. Tom Robbins
