Celebrity Handwriting Analysis this week, Amy Schumer!

Happy birthday, Amy Schumer! (June 1, 1981)

This week’s celebrity handwriting analysis is this funny lady. When I started looking for her signature to analyze I thought, This can’t be it, surely this is just some random person making a scribble in one of Amy’s books. The more I searched, the more I found myself shaking my head and thinking, Amy, put down the pen… step away from the writing instrument. Well, she can’t be good at everything, so if her only fault is her penmanship, we can let her slide.

I know this may come as a shock, but Amy’s writing shows she’s out-going, outspoken, and loves attention. (Weird, right?) She also tends to portray more confidence than she’s feeling. Otherwise, her writing has high qualities of honesty and truthfulness. The ‘what you see is what you get’ is endearing and likable. With Amy, if she’s happy, you’ll know if, if she’s pissed, you’ll know it… she wears her heart on her sleeve. There’s plenty of privacy in her writing too, she’s protective of those closest to her and may still struggle being a recognizable star.

Adaptable and well adjusted, (well, for the most part well adjusted), Amy enjoys conversations and can make friends easily. When it comes to making decisions, Amy likes to talk things out. Overall, she’s pretty chatty (another surprise, right?) There’s also consistent indications that she’s a peace keeper, a lover (not a fighter) and a person that truly has empathy for others.

Amy’s a daddy’s girl. (Okay, I read her book and know she’s a daddy’s girl, but it’s in her writing too… really, it is.) She has a can-do attitude but may be a downer if the project isn’t something her heart is invested in. She’s all about serving other’s, possibly to a fault. She’s forgiving. She’s intelligent. She’s kind. She’s flexible (possibly in more ways than one… just trying to be funny. lol…)

For years, I’ve enjoyed this young woman’s talents and now I’ve peeked at her writing, I totally want her to stop by, ride my horse and smoke a lefty. Happiest of Birthdays, Amy! Cheers to many more!

Quotes by Amy Schumer

I’m a woman with thoughts and questions and shit to say. I say if I’m beautiful. I say if I’m strong. You will not determine my story – I will.

I will speak and share and fuck and love and I will never apologize to the frightened millions who resent that they never had it in them to do it. I stand here and I am amazing, for you. Not because of you. I am not who I sleep with. I am not my weight. I am not my mother. I am myself. And I am all of you, and I thank you.

Nothing good ever happens in a blackout. I’ve never woken up and been like, ‘What is this Pilates mat doing out?’

Hello… Adele. Happy birthday! (handwriting analysis)

My celebrity happy birthday handwriting analysis goes out to a British treasure, Adele. A lot of wonderful musicians that have shaped our lives have come from across the pond, Adele is no exception. Born 5/5/88 Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, her young, single mother raised her alone. Adele always knew what she wanted to be when she grew up and wrote her first hit at the age of 16. She has broken records in the music industry, specifically for women. She was the first woman in history to have three simultaneous top ten hits on the iconic Billboard top 100. Her long list of awards includes six Grammys, album of the year, artist of the year not to mention, VH1 and Time magazine’s accolades touting her as one of the most influential women in the world.

There were some things about her handwriting that surprised me, in fact, when I first found her signature on-line I thought it had to be a fake, but further research showed it was the right one. There are only a few things handwriting analysis doesn’t show and one of those things is age.  Of course, there are people who are young, young at heart and then those who are mentally impaired or lack education. These are indications of how old the writer might be, but are not solid clues for age guessing.

With Adele’s signature, she shows education and intelligence, young at heart but with an old soul. I was shocked to learn she’s only twenty-nine today. Her writing shows a tendency to serve others first, a ‘what can I do for you’ suggestion. There is a sense of calmness graced with confidence. With as big as superstar as she is, I totally expected to see her writing laced with ego-but no. She’s down to earth and real. Optimistic and (mostly) happy she’s creative, spontaneous and chatty. And she wants you to like her. (Who doesn’t, right?)

When you look at her signature, it’s almost illegible. This could be because she signs so much and has gotten a bit sloppy but it can also mean she has some privacy issues going on. I love the fact she puts a period after her signature, it’s the only real ego shown in her writing. (I am who I am, period.) She’s hard on herself and has a high ‘bar’ set within her profession and personal life, but she will never apologize for who she is (like it or lump it). Tenacious, she won’t quit (a bit like a bulldog, don’t piss her off, there’s a bit of a temper simmering just under the surface-especially if you mess with her family-mess with her all you want, but don’t even think of going after her loved ones).

There is also a nice balance between tradition and new ideas. I love this about Adele’s signature. She honors tradition yet knows she must roll with the times to stay on top. (Smart.) The other balance in her penmanship is with money. She’s generous but not. To put it another way, she must believe in what she’s donating to, it must be a passion for her or she will decline giving money or time. There’s a hint of ‘me first’ in the finance category of her handwriting.

I specifically picked signatures with hearts on them. Many female stars sign this way. Adele’s hearts are often one line (she doesn’t lift the pen).  There can be seen crosses and hooks within them telling us she’s ‘once bitten; twice shy’ when it comes to love and relationships.

Of course, I love Adele’s music, it’s amazing. Today, since I’ve peeked into her personal world with her penmanship, I’ve fallen in love with who she is. I’ve discovered a genuinely nice person who is a riot to be with, a young woman with a fantastic sense of humor, wit and passion. Happy Birthday, Adele. If there is anything left you want to do while you’re still in your twenties, you better get on it! Looking forward to the next several decades of your amazing music making!

Quotes by Adele

I don’t make music for the eyes. I make music for the ears.

I wanted to be a singer forever. But it’s not really my cup of tea. Having the whole world know who you are.

Be brave and fearless to know that even if you do make a wrong decision, you’re making it for a good reason.

It’s baseball season! Happy Birthday to Pete Rose.

It’s baseball season so Pete Rose is the perfect happy birthday celebrity handwriting analysis for this week. Known as “Charlie Hustle” or “The Hit King”, Pete became famous for an outstanding 4,256 hits within his career. A man familiar with the science behind handwriting analysis, Mr. Rose was banned from baseball due to a forensic document examiner testifying it was his handwriting on betting slips in 1989. Although he claims he never wagered against his team, it was argued that he was betting ten thousand dollars a game … But I’m getting ahead of myself.

Pete was born April 14, 1941 to Harry and LaVerne Rose. Harry’s nick name was ‘big Pete’ and it seemed a fitting name for his son since he had never liked his own birth name. Born the second child of four, Pete’s father pushed him in to sports by way of example. Harry loved football and Pete picked up on the drive, ambition and inclination for sports but Pete’s talent was in baseball. The family never took a summer vacation since that was the baseball season. Harry did not think it fair to the team if ‘one of their best players’ took a vacation. Pete learned right off the bat (pun intended) to hit both right and left handed and would switch depending on the pitcher. He often cited his dad for pushing him to be great in his field.

Within his autograph, you can see his grandiose ego, vanity and bad taste. There are also signs of prejudice, and a few dishonesty signs, specifically, dishonesty by omission (this is further confirmed over his tax trouble for evasion and not reporting all of his income.) Violence can also be seen in some of his handwriting, hot-headed temper and the potential to lash out. He’s an all caps printer which shows his detachment from those around him, he’s emotionally unavailable and has high privacy issues.  There are also indications that he is selfish and self-preserving. When his own daughter said he wasn’t a good father, his reply was, “Of course I am, I just bought my daughter a car.” Within relationships, money buys happiness and loyalty.

Mr. Rose was banned from baseball after he was accused of betting for the team he was coaching, a practice forbidden to key personnel. It was a handwriting expert that testified it was indeed Pete Rose’s handwriting on the smudged gambling tickets. Naturally, Mr. Rose’s attorneys attacked the credentials of the handwriting expert, but the judge upheld the testimony and it was the damning piece of evidence.

During the most recent election, Donald Trump tweeted a picture of a baseball that Pete Rose wrote “Mr. Trump, make America great again” and signed it. Naturally, this was taken as an endorsement but when asked about it, Pete stated that if he’s getting paid to sign a ball, he writes what the customer wants and there was no support towards the current president. (btw, he charges between $40 and $75 for these signatures…)

Happy birthday, Pete Rose. And best of luck.

Personal note… I must admit, this analysis really disappointed me. Pete Rose is quite a jerk and his handwriting proved it. I love baseball have respect for a man who played the game well but as a person, I lost a lot of respect just by researching his signature. See you next week.

Literary Legend, Beverly Cleary, Happy 101st Birthday! (handwriting analysis)

Clear, clean and easy to read as her books, Beverly Cleary’s signature is straight forward and legible. If she hadn’t become an author, she has what it takes to be a school teacher (like her mother). An only child growing up on a farm in Oregon, Ms. Cleary struggled learning to read. Once she did, the library became her favorite place to be. One of the jobs that affected her career path was being a librarian. She watched as students struggled to find characters and stories they could relate to, this inspired her to write. Her books are so relate-able they have stood the tests of time, remember Ramona? Born Beverly Bunn, she married her husband, Clarence Cleary in 1940 and published under that name. They were married up to his death in 2004. She had boy/girl twins, Malcom and Marianne, who inspired some of her characters and their adventures. Many of her characters were inspired with the boys and girls she grew up with.

Beverly Cleary’s handwriting has the perfect slant, what some call the teacher slant. This is indicative of a person who can get along with just about anyone; those super shy and those exuberant extroverts. There are a few different signs that she works well alone and can adapt whether she’s a wall flower or center stage. (Although, she genuinely loves people.) Her signature shows she forgives and forgets. This may have caused her to be taken advantage of over the years by those that prey on forgiving souls. I was able to find several samples of her writing as well as her signature. They are all consistent and haven’t changed much over the decades. She may be stuck in her glory days and comfortable the way things were. Deep thinking and analytical, Beverly’s writing shows she’s also ‘a lover not a fighter’. The only confrontation indications in her writing are a desire for an intellectual debate. What you see is what you get with Ms. Cleary, there is no BS or flamboyance, like her writing style.

Currently she’s living in a retirement home in California where she’s been a long-time resident. Happy 101st Birthday to this literary legend! (April 12, 1916)

Beverly Clearly quotes

If you don’t see the book on the shelf you want to read, write it.

I wanted to be a ballerina when I grew up. I changed my mind.

Problem solving, and I don’t mean algebra, seems to be my life’s work. Maybe it’s everyone’s life work.

Happy Birthday Christopher Walken (celebrity handwriting analysis)

Is this man really as eccentric as the characters he plays on the big screen? When we take a look at Christopher Walken‘s handwriting, we see some of those ‘just a little off’ characteristics in his signature.

Born Ronald Walken, Christopher (Chris to his friends) changed his name at the suggestion of Monique van Vooren, a performer in which he was a backup dancer. Walken had been performing since he was only three years old influenced by his mother’s dream of stardom. He enjoyed the stage and briefly was a lion tamer in a circus while he was still a teenager. He found a niche for acting even though his official training is dance. Mr. Walken’s distinct hair style was provoked by his love and admiration for Elvis Presley. It has become one of his most recognizable physical traits.

Looking for credible sources of his handwriting I noticed a variety of penmanship for this one man. There are many differences with his signatures/writing which is common for most people. Handwriting is based on the emotions and going on’s in the moment you write. Body language on paper. Throughout the dozen or so signatures I looked at, there are enough common traits to find the real Christopher Walken’s autographs immediately.

The W, although it changes, the entry and exit strokes are consistent as well as the right side embellishment. When his whole name is written out, there are rebellious signs that show up in the letter R as well as his quick wit and creativity. Although cast in darker roles, he prefers the more humorous parts. His handwriting shows a wide sense of humor, in other words, he can find humor in a wide variety of things… Things other people may not find funny.

Some of his writing could be compared to a doctors, illegible and fast. This indicates his intelligence plus the fact he’s already three moves ahead of you.

One trait consistent in his writing are the hooks. These are indications of those individuals that may have a temper, and also have a hard time letting go of hurt feelings (grudges). He also has a wall built in the letter that relates to women indicating deep hurt from a female in his life as well as many privacy traits. (You know how those Hollywood guys are…)  When you look at his penmanship over the years, generosity is something that has crept into his writing with age, and most likely, success.

This week’s celebrity birthday handwriting analysis could use a little more cowbell!
Happy Birthday, Christopher Walken! Here’s to many more!

Quotes by Christopher Walken

My hair was famous before I was.

There probably aren’t a lot of actors my age who tap dance.

Movies are terrifically optimistic enterprises.

Emotional power is maybe the most valuable thing an actor can have.

Carrie Underwood’s Handwriting Analysis Birthday Shoutout

Happy 34th birthday Carrie Underwood (Fisher)!

Ever since I watched the movie, God Bless America, I’ve sworn off reality shows. However, in 2005, I was swept up in the fourth season of American Idol like the rest of the country. Carrie Underwood was the obvious choice and I cried along with her when she was announced the winner. It’s been lovely to watch this all-American girl rise to become an iconic figure in the Country Western music world. Watching her succeed and be successful, rise to super-stardom, fall in love and become a mother gives us all the sensation dreams do come true. She’s a class act with humble roots who loves animals and has a true-to-herself style. (Author to author…) Check out her book-folio, Carrie Underwood, Some Hearts. (Reader to reader…) She loves Stephen King!

When we look at her autograph, we can see the changes money and fame did to this wonderful woman as well as the traditional background she was raised with. The C is the letter of femininity, hers has a sharp edge to it. Perhaps she’s been burned by a woman or has ‘walls’ built around her in regards to girlfriends or female co-workers. This has not changed over the years. It’s been in her personality since before fame. She’s optimist and in general, happy.

The animal that coordinates with the letter C is the White Buffalo. Carrie’s C is all it imbues, quiet confidence, a-subtle-storm-not-to-be-messed-with plus pride of her heritage and family. The rest of her first name is basically a squiggle and a loop. The signature of her first name shows she’s private (and was before she became famous), has a great compassion for others and the ability to listen. She forgives but doesn’t forget, fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.

The Underwood part of her autograph shows she’s determined, may worry what others think of her, and is highly protective of her family, (a trait in common with Michael Jackson) I love the way she is resolute in what she wants, for example, being vegan and Christian.  Regardless of her religion and eating habits, she remains open-minded and is equally ready to teach as to become the student. Traditional and polite, her writing shows manners and respect. My guess is, she may have been a border-line introvert before she took the spotlight. Money has changed her core values very little. Since she is naturally caring, she views her wealth as a tool to make life better for her and those she loves.

Cheers Mrs. Underwood-Fisher! Enjoy your special day with family and everything that makes your heart sing!

Quotes

Sometimes that mountain you’ve been climbing is just a grain of sand, and what you’ve been up there searching for forever, is in your hands. When you figure out love is all that matters after all it sure makes everything else seem so small.

I am grateful for every scar, some pages turned, some bridges burned, but there were lessons learned.
