Innovation Scroll

新機軸 is a Japanese word that is used to mean: innovation; new departure; new way; milestone; breakthrough.

The literal meaning is, "new axis" or "new axle". It's almost like saying a new wheel (like coming up with a round wheel when the previous version was square).

Please note that this also has meaning in Chinese but only would mean "new axle" without the meaning of "innovation" being associated with it. Consider this to be "Japanese only".

Innovation Scroll

革新 is innovate or innovation in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

The literal meaning is, "new leather" but you need to first understand that colloquially, this leather character also means renewal, reform, change, or transform.

The while the first character is leather or reform, the second character strictly means "new".

Failure in Not an Option

shī bài bìng fēi yì zhǒng xuǎn zé
Failure in Not an Option Scroll

失敗並非一種選擇 is probably the best way to say, "Failure is not an option", in Chinese.

Just don't forget that some ancient Chinese proverbs suggest that failure is a learning opportunity that leads to success or innovation. So don't plan to fail but failure is only a waste if nothing is learned from the failure.

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.
