Gorgeous calligraphy using iPad and modified Apple Pencil

In addition to making amazing pen-and-ink calligraphy, Ian Barnard is great with an iPad and Apple Pencil. And the latter allows for do-overs if you make a mistake halfway (or more typically, on the final letter or stroke).

Finally made myself a Parallel Pen equivalent in @procreateapp to do blackletter. Now I've worked out how to make a brush I can start converting all my favourite pens and have them to access on the iPad. #happydays πŸ‘ If that goes well then I'll make them available to download.
