The rooster design was created by Jane Labanz, a calligrapher and artist based in New York City. Jane’s formal training as a concert pianist, vocalist and dancer is the essence of her composition and hallmark of her style. Her disciplined background, coupled with the element of musicality that enhances her work, makes her delightfully playful strokes undulate and dance. “I dance on paper. I make music with pen strokes,” she says.
While the Year of the Rooster notebooks are being introduced, Jane is performing the role of “Eileen” in a production of 64 Irving Berlin songs, entitled I Love a Piano at Milwaukee Rep. “I do one script during the day, and a different kind of script at night,” she says.
As a member of Screen Actor’s Guild (SAG), Actor’s Equity Association (AEA) and American Guild of Variety Artists (AGVA) Jane provides film, televisions, theatrical, and advertising production companies with expressive live on-camera writing and calligraphic props.
Jane’s calligraphy company is A Delicate Pen.
