Expressive Calligraphy;Denis Brown at Island Magic

My instructor at Island Magic; Denis Brown demonstrates how he writes so expressively. He puts his strokes down quickly, almost slashing, even using his pen in an upward fashion, contrary to what most calligraphers have been taught.

Atom: Denis wrote in white gouache on polyfilm with black sheet under; note the corner of the penstroke on the exit hairline of the A is taken right off the page.

Quickly written
in class by Denis.

A quick demo done in class shows the fluidity of Denis' writing.
