Mr. James Fazz Farrell is a calligraphy artist and teacher of Spencerian and Roundhand from Buckinghamshire, England. His work was first called to my attention in 2015, by a student who had begun to study online with James through video calls on Skype. Those of you who have taken workshops or lessons with me know the high regard in which I hold James and his outstanding writing ability, and it is my most sincere honor to be able to share this interview with all of you so that we might better know the man behind the pen. You can find James and his work on his site, at www.jamesfazzfarrell.blogspot.it, or on Instagram at www.instagram.com/james_fazz_farrell.

Edward Curran is a calligrapher and up-and-coming pen maker from Bedfordshire, England whom I had the incredibly fortunate opportunity to become friends with during the IAMPETH Conference in the summer of 2015. Edward is an Irishman, through and through, and our friendship stems from our mutual affection for the pen as well as his incredible patience with this thing I do where I adopt the accent of anyone I meet (Thanks for putting up with me, Ed!). You can find out more about Edward and his work on his site, at www.currancalligraphy.co.uk, or on Instagram at instagram.com/curran_calligraphy.

Mr. Joan Quirós is a graphic designer who specializes in custom lettering and calligraphy, and currently lives and works in Valencia, Spain. Over the last three years, I’ve kept a vigilant eye on Joan’s work as he grew into the formidable calligrapher that he is today. Luckily, he agreed to speak with me about his journey so that I may share it with you as an entry in the Splitting Tines interview series. You can find Joan and his work on his site, at www.joanquiros.com, or on Instagram at instagram.com/joanquiros.
