Lonely

China gū dú
Japan ko doku
Lonely

孤獨 means lonely, solitude, loneliness, and lonesome.
In some context, it can mean reclusive, isolation, single or solo.

孤獨 is a Japanese word but not a good selection for a wall scroll.
In Chinese, this will relay a rather sad feeling to anyone who reads this calligraphy on your wall.


独The version shown to the left is the Traditional Chinese and ancient Japanese version. In modern Japan and China they often use a different more simplified version of the second character (as shown to the right). If you want this Japanese/Simplified version, please click on the character shown to the right instead of the button above.

Alone / A Lone Person

Japan dokuji
Alone / A Lone Person

This Japanese word means "alone" in the context of a person by himself/herself. This can be translated as individual; solo; on one's own; by oneself.

Lonely Soul / Solitary

China xíng dān yǐng zhī
Lonely Soul / Solitary

This Chinese idiom means "lonely soul" if you are a solitary person, or lost soul, this may be the title for you.

Miss You Forever

China yǒng yuǎn xiǎng niàn nǐ
Miss You Forever

永遠想念你 is how to write "missing you forever" in Chinese.

The first two characters mean "forever" or "eternally."
The third and forth characters mean "missing" or "longing for."
The last character means "you."

This might suggest that you are missing someone whom you will never see again (depending on how you read it, or in what context it is used).

China qióng qióng jié lì xíng yǐng xiāng diào

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 nice Chinese calligraphy wall scroll

The wall scroll that Sandy is holding in this picture is a "large size"
single-character wall scroll.
We also offer custom wall scrolls in small, medium, and an even-larger jumbo size.

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.
