Blank Customer Wallscroll...

If the customer has the confidence to write, then they can order a blank scroll. I can just imagine a rabbit going on here for this years sign of the Zodiac...

If you would like to order a custom scroll there are three ways to get started: 1. Go to my shopping site at www.shop.customjapanesecalligraphy.com 2. Download my scroll design workbook from my website at www.customjapanesecalligraphy.com to read about the concepts behind kakejiku or wallscroll design. 3. E-mail to me directly at sales@customjapanesecalligraphy.com 

What do you think will go on the scroll?

This turned out beautifully, with the Brown Ichimonji in the Maru Hyougu style. After the Fuchin Arrive I will take a better picture and then ship it off to the Land Down Under.

Customer Order Shikishi 色紙

This customer wanted her name written in the Sousho style. They also wanted it in Gyousho, but I am showing the Sousho form. They already had a Japanese name, so there was not translation involved, just verification of the correct Characters. If you are interested in an order contact http://www.shop.customjapanesecalligraphy.com/
