Sign pen Calligraphy postcard
This summer, I have completed courses in a sign-pen calligraphy in ArtiYa Calligraphy School. The graduation assignment was to create a composition for a greeting card based on using the obtained technique.
At the very first class, I realized that I would need to develop a postcard with a universal greeting... the one that would be very well-known in Ukraine (so in Russia and Belarus). And we have the one that is literally translated as "Be Happy, Healthy and all the best!". In Ukrainian, it sounds like "Щастя, здоров'я і всього найкращого".
After I completed the calligraphy part of the assignment, I moved forward to processing the background image of the postcard in Photoshop. The image we see here is a photo of my autumn scarf painted in a folk style.
The concept of the greeting card is designed to be funny, put a smile and evoke memories about Ukrainian elderly women (Babushkas) who often use this old-fashioned greeting.
