JUNE 2021 — The Expressive Line, Part 2
The cola can pen remains one of my favorite writing instruments. It is capable of so many things, from rough to smooth, from thin to thick, from splattered to refined. I will show you how I use the pen and then define some principles by which you can develop your own gestural scripts without imitating other calligraphers. Script is, after all, a very personal form of expression. But finding your own voice is not always easy when there are amazing posts on Instagram every day that might exert a powerful influence over your work. We will look at this problem very closely and see how you can create your own gestural style.

Excellent Series: full of interesting ideas and a challenging assignment. Quite pleased that it's the last one before the two month gap so that I can continue working. The interaction with the tutor is as good as expected - Brody is amazing. But I also really value the study group that I joined. So nice to meet other students - even though we are far apart - and share our thoughts on each others endeavours.
