Gosha Bondarev is a hand-lettering artist who runs a business making calligraphy designs on commission and for branding purposes.

He uses vintage typography that takes a steady hand to master, with his calligraphy designs resulting in a dignified look that he models well through his popular Instagram account. His lettering styles show how different meanings can be conveyed simply through some careful adjustments of the brush stroke. In addition, he creates beautiful drawings of wildlife, skulls and other symbols to go along with his words.

His work includes a bird drawn over a sheet of music with the words "Songs are as sad as the listener" over top. Another shows three coffee beans with one split open and revealing a heart, with "Early risers coffee-hearted" written in old-fashioned lettering. As Gosha Bondarev shows, Instagram has become an incredibly useful tool for artists to promote their work and seek out potential clients.
