Italic Handwriting – Two Years Later

Italic Handwriting

In May 2010, I decided to learn the italic hand. It was not an easy thing to do because I had to unlearn many of “bad” habits and learn new ones.  I needed to practice for many hours just to be able to shape my letters to look somewhat italic. It is clear in the above picture that I was not very good at drawing italic letters back then.  The next step after that was to join some of my letters and to be honest, there was a time when I wondered if I would ever be able to join my letters.

Today, my italic handwriting looks like this:


While there is still a lot of room for improvement, I honestly believe that I have made a lot of progress. I cannot wait to see what it will look like in two years.
