Profile Of The World's Youngest Master Penman

Penmanship is becoming a lost art, and as computer peripherals and software are programmed to better simulate natural mediums the art of pen and ink is pushed further into the background.

And yet there are those who are keeping the tradition alive, those who prefer pen nibs dipped in ink to plastic nibs sketching on a digital surface.

These champions of traditional art are few in numbers, and assumed to be “of a certain age” due to the antiquated medium they’re championing, but one young man is defying these norms.

I showed this to my preschool class for a couple of different reasons. One: He makes beautiful art. Two: He practiced. Nobody is great at something when they start. Everyone needs to practice. Three: Look how nicely he holds his pen. :)

(Four: Ignore the beer.)
