Please tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Schin Loong, I am originally from Malaysia and am currently living in Nevada, US. I work as a graphic artist and illustrator by day, and by night I am a calligrapher.


How did you get into calligraphy?

I discovered flourished birds and ornamental Spencerian penmanship and was blown away by their elegance and beauty, amazed that they were all done by hand in minutes. I vowed to be able to do the same... eventually.

A couple years later, I have barely scratched the surface of what the masters can do. Give me another 50-60 years, I'll get it by then...

Please tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Becca Hillburn, and I'm an illustrator, comic artist, and art supply blogger. I'm currently living in Nashville, Tennessee, but I'm from New Orleans, Louisiana. The majority of my paying work is freelance illustration for other studios, but I also participate in various collaborations such as comic anthologies and group art projects.

Currently, I'm working on a children's comic inspired by The Borrowers, as well as working with a writer on a children's book about an inventor granny. I also attend a handful of conventions centered around comics or cartoon art and offer my services as an illustrator for hire, as well as a variety of mini comics and knick-knacks. I specialize in creating comics for children and really enjoy creating work for this demographic. I also enjoy completing private commissions for individuals.

An interview series featuring notable people whose lives intersect with the world of pens. Kate is a handwriting repair expert who has made a career of helping individuals with poor penmanship improve and develop their own unique, legible script.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Kate Gladstone, and I am a professional handwriting repair expert.

I live in Albany, NY, with my husband, whom I have been married to for twenty years. I was born in Brooklyn in 1963, and have a brother and two sisters. Both of my parents spent most of their lives teaching English, but my father was also an inventor working mainly on energy systems for alternative fuels.

Although I am right-handed, I have taught myself to write left-handed well enough to demonstrate effectively with that hand for left-handed students (I can also write in mirror-writing — with either hand — but there is less practical use for that ability).
