Sorry, too late for Christmas delivery of custom calligraphy. But I do have a lot of in-stock calligraphy. If you have an emergency, I have a limited number of blank scrolls and can have a local calligrapher create something for you.
Want to order a custom scroll now? I can also create a web page to show the gift recipient about the scroll they will receive in January. Contact me!

I Need You

China wǒ xū yào nǐ
I Need You Wall Scroll

Some people like to say, "I love you" but others might want to say "I need you." That is what this phrase is all about.

The first character means "I." The second and third create a compound word that means "need" and "want" at the same time. The last character means "you."

I Need You

Japan ana ta ga hitsu you
I Need You Wall Scroll

Some people like to say, "I love you" but others might want to say "I need you." This is "I need you" in Japanese.

The first two characters mean "You."

The middle character is a connecting particle. In this case, it more or less means "are."

The last two characters mean necessary, needed, essential, indispensable, or necessity.

The "I" in the title is implied. Effectively this means "I need you."

I Want You

Japan ho shi i
I Want You Wall Scroll

Some people like to say, "I love you," if you want to say "I want you," here it is in Japanese...

This can be read as "I want you" or as a single word, "wanted," "wished for," "in need of," or "desired."


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

All of our calligraphy wall scrolls are handmade.

When the calligrapher finishes creating your artwork, it is taken to my art mounting workshop in Beijing where a wall scroll is made by hand from a combination of silk, rice paper, and wood.
After we create your wall scroll, it takes at least two weeks for air mail delivery from Beijing to you.

Allow a few weeks for delivery. Rush service speeds it up by a week or two for $10!

When you select your calligraphy, you'll be taken to another page where you can choose various custom options.

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.

A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
