KEN BROWN CALLIGRAPHY ASKS A QUESTION!

YouTube

Why has a simple, monotone, way-too-slow, cost-free video of my calligraphy with a pencil out-hit my more colorful and elaborate videos with pen, colorful ink, and a dental drill?  

My Corvette-collecting brother, Michael, has spent lots of time and resources on a list of his whiz-bang, start-your-heart-pumping Vette videos on YouTube and the pencil video is ahead of his best.  Here’s his full list. 

We’re both puzzled.  Any answers out there?

Oh yes, here is a ‘family’ commercial Michael shot for a recent GM competition,

CHEVY RUNS DEEP.

    My guess would be there are a lot of people out there that are interested in what you are doing and how you do it. Everyone has used a pencil before, understands how it works, and can relate to it. When you put it on YouTube folks are going to watch and learn.

    My guess is that a pencil is a lot easier to find in the kitchen drawer than a fountain pen…

    I agree. I am looking into taking up calligraphy again after not doing it for over 30(!) year so obviously I don’t have graphics pens at hand. I was browsing through youtube and saw the video, which confirmed that in my doodling at meetings and conferences I haven’t strayed too far from the art. With a pencil and lined paper, I was able to practice along with the video. A great introduction for the beginner or re-learner who doesn’t have graphics pens and inks lying around the house.
