C-C-See what I've been practicing? I could watch Pat Blair and Michael Sull letter all day. In the top two rows, I've tried a capital "C' that I saw Pat do during her class at IAMPETH. In the last three rows, I've practiced a capital "C" from one of the handouts Michael Sull gave each of us during his class. Michael said for a single, large, ornamental letter, he expects to use one, new Leonardt EF Principal, and then pitch it because it is worn and stressed beyond use. Wow! He only uses the Principal for special, showstopping letters. It's the only pen point that can produce such large shades. For most of his other work, he uses a Nikko G, which is what I used for these exercises.
Happy Flourish Friday everyone - enjoy your weekend!
I'm a calligrapher working out of my home studio. I have a passion for calligraphy and have an insatiable appetite for learning new things to incorporate with my lettering.
I have reduced the amount of client work I accept, and as a result, my schedule fills quickly. Of course, you are welcome to contact me about my availability. If I am unable to do the work, then I am pleased to provide referrals.
In addition to calligraphy, I enjoy journaling, traveling, baking, reading and watching Purdue University basketball. I am married to my best friend and we have two great kids.
Feel free to email me about my work, but please do not take, download, or copy my work without my permission.
