Mr. Niels ‘Shoe’ Meulman from Holland does something called “calligraffiti”. Now,  I am not sure what to make of all this, to be quite honest. To me it kind of sort of looks like someone who has had some calligraphy-classes and wasn’t to bad at it, and then decided to make it a lot cooler by suggesting it has something to do with graffiti… Oh well, I guess everybody is allowed to make a living somehow. And it does result in some nice calligra…phyti…thingies. Especially the one who look like they are still wet.

Check it out, perhaps watch the video, and tell me what you think.










Let’s check out what Mr Shoe looks like in person on this video, found on the Nalden blog, which I hear is the site to be these days. (Yeah, I don’t know how I ended up there, either. Normally I’m never at the place to be.  Very strange…)


If you want to know more, Niels Meulman has a book out with plenty of examples of his work. Or you could just check out his blog, where you can also buy his pen.

Me, I’m still not convinced. What do you think?
