The little things are infinitely the most important.

I’ve wanted to take a class at MCAD (the Minneapolis College of Art and Design) for a while now – they’re a few blocks from my apartment and they have some great continuing education classes on a variety of subjects.  I took a three-week calligraphy course recently to help expand my repertoire of things-I-can-do-by-hand.  It was a great way to learn about controlling the pen and have some supervised practice.

Our second night project (first night was practice writing and writing our names) was creating a calligraphic quote.  I chose “The little things are infinitely the most important.” from Sherlock Holmes.  I’ve been re-reading the Sherlock Holmes novels by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, which inspired me to use this quote, but I think it also just makes a good life quote on its own.

Both of these prints and other items with this design are available at my Society6 shop.
