"I don’t really feel I have that 'unique' style, but I’m in love with script and flourishes since actually I began with copperplate calligraphy at first," Dexa Muamar told Lettering Guy. "The way the letters connect is something special for me, and I can play with the flourish of course. And for now I feel more comfortable drawing at small scale. [It’s] usually at 3-4cm in width."

Meet Dexa Muamar, an Indonesian artist who intricately letters meaningful phrases on the micro scale. Titled "Tiny Masterworks," these drawings are at present just a hobby for Muamar, who is finishing a BA in Economic Development. When Lettering Guy asked Muamar what drives him to lettering, despite his other pursuits, he replied:

“I think letters is the way to reveal our thought about something that happens around us, like me, I like to [write] quotes [that reflects someone’s] incident/case. I rarely bring motivation quotes, i love the “truest” quotes that has an impact on us. Besides that, making letters kinda been therapy for me, you won’t get the “good letters” just by in short time, I love how we strive to pursuit it”

Add "be" after "born to" Add"-ing" to "stand" It can be read as: born to be standing out OR born to be outstanding Just a suggestion ;3

This is good, but I think it would be more inspirational if the quote was oriented at learning by your mistakes. It's all experience that's there to make us stronger and wiser.
