Be Myself Scroll

做我自己 means "Be Myself" in Chinese.

Believe in Yourself

jibun o shinjiru
Believe in Yourself Scroll

This means, "believe in yourself", "have faith in yourself", or "believe in myself" (can be myself or yourself depending in if you're saying it to yourself or someone else).


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

Use Hard Work to Overcome Adversity

kè kǔ nài láo
Use Hard Work to Overcome Adversity Scroll

This Chinese proverb suggests that you should always bear hardships and work hard.

Some will translate it as a suggestion to be assiduous and long-suffering.

My favorite is to use this to remind myself to be hard-working and capable of overcoming adversity.

Forever In My Heart

yǒng yuǎn zài wǒ xīn
Forever In My Heart Scroll

永遠在我心 means, "forever in my heart" or "always in my heart" in Chinese.

永遠在我心 is the shorter, somewhat lyrical version of this phrase.

永遠 forever / eternal
在 at / in / exists
我 me / myself / my
心 heart / mind / soul

Forgive Yourself / Release Yourself

ware o yuru su
Forgive Yourself / Release Yourself Scroll

我を許す is how to write "forgive yourself" in Japanese.

The first two characters mean, "regarding myself".

The last two characters mean, "to forgive", "to excuse (from)", "to pardon", "to release", "to let off", "to permit", "to allow", and/or "to approve".


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

I am the Master of My Destiny

wǒ mìng yóu wǒ bù yóu tiān
I am the Master of My Destiny Scroll

This is often translated as "The one that shapes my destiny will always be myself rather than the God" or "Rather than Heaven, I am the master of my fate".

Breaking down the words directly:
我命 = My fate/destiny
由我 = depends (on) me
不 = not
由天 dependant (on) Heaven.

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.

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.
