About Course


In this series we will take a deeper dive in our Yellow Submarine. In the last session you learned to make your own fat and juicy YS letters with a pointed brush. Now we will use a pointed pen (your choice: quill, ruling pen, copperplate pen…) to draw these luscious shapes and then fill them with color. Nuances in the bounding line, shadows and overlapping will give a sense of depth and layering. You will learn to make stunning compositions radiant with color and depth. Participation in Series 6 recommended.

This series pushed me the furthest in directions I am yet to finish exploring. I struggled with going too far but learnt that my instincts are sound. I have lots more exploring to do but found the breadth of student work very refreshing and well away from the tiredness of the usual calligraphic domain. It’s been an amazing ride so far. Merci beaucoup Brody.

What a wonderful and enlightening experience! This whole course should be prescribed for design students. I have found it to be far more than a simple course on how to make a letter. You learn to think about making the letter, why you would put it there and then finally how to do it. This course will open your mind to colour, design, 21st century lettering and so much more. Do it !

It was such an enriching experience, learned to look at colours, lettering and calligraphy in a completely new way. The sessions were enjoyable, very informative and relaxed, best teacher.

This and the whole year courses were absolutely wonderful. The whole approach to Brody's classes gives the tools and brain to explore possibilities and not just copying a teachers letterforms. The critic section is most enlightening and glad we can have some interaction.
Brody has a great way of explaining his thought and actions when demonstrating and I enjoyed it immensely.
