It's interesting how you solve the "г" problem :) Although it looks a bit like ч, I like it!

Victoria Pittman said...

Thanks Annabel..
That's the non russian for you!

It's been so long since I've written out anything.. I always avoid the problem letters for me like the Zhe!
Still need that Cyrillic keyboard.

I could send you some keyboard stickers... and then you just turn on international support in your Windows or Mac OS!

Adore - especially the background...

Victoria Pittman said...

Thanks Ange!

and Annabel, that would be cool or where do you get the stickers?

Are you still involved with the Exhibit in Russia this year?

HI, Victoria. I love this piece, the background and lettering are so beautiful. You are one of the bloggers that I have actually met -- at Calligraphy conference in Collegeville, Minnesota. I love your work. Thanks for also peeking in at my blog too.

Victoria Pittman said...

Thanks Jan.
Several years back then?
Are you from MN?
And Thank You the compliments and visting here.

Victoria,

I'll get them from my drawer :) I have a bunch of them and I am not using them anymore - I am used to touch-typing...

Also a good quick fix is an online keyboard, my favorite is this one: http://www.yandex.ru/keyboard_qwerty.html

Please email me your address (annabelkina@gmail.com) and I'll send them to you!

No, I don't have any relations with Russian Exhibit anymore, but I have their catalog - pretty cool one! Remind me to take it to the Odyssey, you are welcome to stop by and have a look :)

Do you know where I can find the English text to "the old world land owners" by Gogol?
