Wrong Letters:

Fat and Juicy with a Pointed Brush

And now for my favorite fusion letters: Yellow Submarine. We will use pen and pointed brush to create these fat and juicy letters filled with lush colors. It’s not easy, I’ll be honest, but it is a truly enjoyable approach to making letters. We will bring together elements from various scripts, combining them to make letterforms with attitude. You have seen them on my Instagram. Now is the chance to try it out and find your own personal fusion. Participation in Series 5 recommended.

This online course will consist of three Zoom sessions:

  • One live lesson with demonstrations and an assignment for you to do in your own time.

  • One live illustrated lecture on my work for film, performance and installation, with Q&A.

  • One live crit session in which I will review a selection of the assignments posted by students, with Q&A.

* Sessions will be recorded and made available to students until December 18.
