Would you prefer iPad stylus over Nib and why?
The iPad stylus and the nib are both valuable tools, each with its own unique strengths and weaknesses. The choice between the two depends on the individual calligrapher’s needs, preferences, and the project they are working on.
An iPad stylus provides the convenience of digital work, the ability to easily make changes, and the convenience of not having to scan or digitize your work. It can also offer a wide range of brushes and calligraphy tools, which can be very useful for certain projects.
On the other hand, a nib and ink provide a traditional and tactile calligraphy experience that is unmatched by digital tools. The physical act of writing with a nib can be very satisfying and can help create a more personal connection to the work. Additionally, traditional calligraphy materials, such as inks and papers, can add depth and richness to the work that is difficult to achieve with a digital tool.
In conclusion, as the Calligrapher, I would say that there is no right or wrong choice between the iPad stylus and the nib. It ultimately comes down to personal preference and the specific needs of each project. Both tools can be valuable in the right hands, and it’s important to find the tool that works best for you and your creative vision.
