Pushing The Bounds of Calligraphy

cal·lig·ra·phy
kəˈligrəfē/
noun
  1. decorative handwriting or handwritten lettering.
    • the art of producing decorative handwriting or lettering with a pen or brush.

I was thinking about calligraphy and handwritten type this morning (what, that's not the first thing you think of when you wake up?) and I started wondering... what is the definition of calligraphy? If it's written in script, but on the sidewalk, is it still calligraphy? What if it's painted on a violin?

I'll let you draw your own conclusions.

Did the leg one make you vomit it your mouth a little bit? Here's some more traditional calligraphy inspiration.
