Although the movie Mean Girls featured many memorable characters, few eclipsed Kevin Gnapoor, the overly self-confident mathlete. The character was played by Rajiv Surendra, who is now a well sought after calligrapher!
On his website he writes that he became interested in penmanship and calligraphy around 12 years ago when he discovered old letters from the mid 1800’s. He began with a pencil, then adapted to a ballpoint pen.
Eventually he discovered he could only reach his desired level by using original pens from the era with tiny metal nibs. He now has his own antique cherry birds-eye maple worktable and authentic rosewood writing slope.
He has even been contacted by Starbucks to design banners for new locations! Who would have thought Kevin G. Would go from rapping about math to calligraphy!
