    An exploration of how classic, ornate copperplate scripts hold up with modern language.
This project was my gateway to calligraphy, an exploration of how ornate copperplate scripts hold up against more . . . modern linguistics. Featuring some of my favorite lyrics from rap and hip-hop royalty, Pretty Dirty Words spawned an Etsy shop for commissioned pieces and saw some internet popularity shortly after, including a feature on Under Consideration’s Quipsologies in November 2013.
