The year is coming to an end and the Japanese postal service wants to remind people to write New Years greetings by offering a special site to play with Japanese calligraphy! As a Gintama fan, the subtitle screen always comes to my mind when I think of Japanese calligraphy, but what would you do?
The top page looks like this and a click on the red button at the bottom will start the page.
In front of you, you have Hanshi, the calligraphy paper as a canvas, Suzuri (an inkstone) and a palette of colors next to it, then 3 brushes to choose from. When you are finished, click on the red button, gray button to do it over again.
Once you finish the work, a pop up window opens up to download your work by clicking the red button or options to share it on Facebook or Twitter.
You get a nicely sized image like this once downloaded.
My best attempt at Gintama-themed calligraphy. What would you draw with the calligraphy app?
