The Youngest Master Penman

Countless methods, traditions and art forms are being abandoned as the world increasingly turns its back on the past in favor of digital technology. The masters of a by-gone era have died, leaving a giant void in our cultural past. However, one man has acheived something truly unique in our fast-paced world of swiping and typing. Jake Weidmann has become the youngest “Master Penman” in the United States by three generations. Jake's work, which took an incredible commitment to detail, practice and patience to achieve, demonstrates the fusion of calligraphy and fine art through the almost-lost technique of handwriting.
