Andrew Fox’s Calligraphy Animals Animated

In 2014, illustrator Andrew Fox published a series of minimal calligraphy animals that were drawn with his Pilot Parallel pen. In 2017, Fox worked with London-based animator Steve Kirby to create Calligraphy Animals Animated, a short in the signature style that he’s continued to develop.

In addition to releasing two books, Learn to Draw Calligraphy Animals: 30 unique creations and Learn to Draw Calligraphy Nature, he posts his animals and other stuff on instagram. A few quick tutorials are shown below:
