Master Penman Jake Weidmann | HUMAN

I first saw this on my friend Bryan's FB page. This video of Jake Weidmann, Master Penman, is so extraordinarily inspiring. It's a testament to hard work, incredible artistic achievement, and the importance of remembering the artistry of the past and keeping it alive.  

Here are two of my favorite quotes from the video:

We're abdicating so much of what we're learning and retaining, 
not to our own memories but to the memories of our computers and other devices.

By doing the the different tactile movements of forming the individual letters and linking those letters one to another and then putting those words into a context of a sentence you're actually ingraining the information in your brain.
