Beach Calligraphy...

"Have to update, Andrew's work on Beach Photography was featured in Letter Arts Review and John Neal Booksellers Catalogue."

Somewhere back in time on the blog I mentioned Andrew Van Der Merwe as an inspiration. &rew is a very talented artist and calligrapher from South Africa. Mind you I do calligraphy, but had to cut back because of a shoulder injury. I letter more than 30 minutes and my arm looks like I'm going through the DT's. Happy thought- that's up from 5 minutes. So, I live vicariously through my artist friends. When my son announced he was getting married last year, I knew I couldn't do the calligraphy for the invites so I asked &rew if I could commission him for the job. He had just started pulling together a new venture of beach calligraphy, so it fit as my son Justin and his sweet wife Anya were married on a schooner at Hilton Head.

This is no sloppy scribble, but crisp detailed images-no photoshopping of the lettering people. Believe me, pure magic. See.

I feel like I am bragging on a family member,
but there is no relation.
Just love showing off talent.
Congrats Andrew, please check out his new website via artfire:
and also his general website for design and calligraphy

Cheers, and if you visit &drew tell him I said Hi.

What an inspired idea Andrew has - beach calligraphy - I love it! I wish him much success with the online store and will spread the word.
