Ivan Castro Calligraphy Video

View all 1 Photos

Ribbons of ink trail along the craft paper. The flow of calligraphy traps us into a trance, as each crest of the next letter meets another new dive of the tool. Such an art of precision. In the thrill of typography, outside of formal script, variations are limitless. If you are one of those font fanatics then I realize your excitement is out the roof with that thought. This typical afternoon with Ivan Castro brings us to a front and center viewing of his work, from scroll to poster to store fronts. Occasionally such immense detail calls for a break away from it all…with the frequent spot of tea and welcome interruptions from “Astro the Mighty Dog.” Videography by Chris Matsu.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
