Amazing calligraphy by Luca Barcellona

I believe I came across Luca Barcellona and his incredible calligraphy skills some time last year, but for whatever reason I decided not to post about him. Cut to last week when I rediscover him and fell back in love with his sexy hand-drawn type. Luca has a studio in Milan where he works from, creating these beautiful letters. It’s pretty rad to browse through his Flickr account and see all the process shots of the work he does. I can’t even begin to imagine how long it takes to earn the confidence to draw like that. It all seems so flawless and effortless.

To get a good sense of what I mean, you should take a few minutes to watch the video below of him working. His hands are so steady and unflinching. I wish more people took the time to learn a craft like that.
