Re: Scroll design question

Hi Gary, Scrolls arrived today, and they are awesome. Custom scroll looks great, and I can hardly believe that you discounted the 無心 scroll I also ordered. The blemish is only noticeable because I knew to look for it. Thank you very much for your efforts on this order. These will look great in the d...

Re: Scroll design question

First link is spot on. That's exactly what I was picturing. Do you think that's the way to go? Or just a single column and smaller characters to limit the length?

Re: Scroll design

I think scenario 3 is most likely; google translate turned up an almost Elizabethan-sounding gobbledygook. Also, my Sensei seems to try and find the older/more polite way of expression. Thank you for you help. I'll likely get my order in later today.

Re: Scroll design

Oops. I wasn't paying attention. Should have been 常に初心を忘れぬべからず. Thanks,

Re: Scroll design

Not to beat a dead horse, but did you happen to find any instance of 常に翔を忘れぬべからず used in this context? I ran across a design done by my instructor, a native Japanese speaker, with this kanji used. Could it be an older way of expressing the same sentiment? Just curious.

Re: Scroll design question

Shorter, actually. The mockup in the customization workflow estimates a scroll length just north of 75". I think two columns that overlap 2 characters rather than all four should be able to decrease the length, as well as be pretty good-looking. Also, I attempted to add another question regarding th...

Scroll design

Also, 初心忘る可からず is what is found in your site, but I have also seen 初心忘るべからず. Can you clarify which more closely reflect the idea of never forget your beginner's spirit? Sorry for the multiple questions, just trying to make sure I order the correct thing without an, "oh shoot" moment after it arrives...

Re: Scroll design question

As a clarification, what I'm looking for is the calligraphy "never forget your beginner's spirit (first resolution)" brushed by Imai-Shihan. Thank you for your help.

Scroll design question

Hi, I'm interested in ordering a custom 8-character scroll, and I'm wondering if it's possible to have it laid out in 2 offset columns to make the length more reasonable (and more closely match some other ~60" scrolls I have). If so, how should that be noted in the ordering process. Thanks much,

Adam
