Hand in your completed, hand-drawn, optically accurate alphabet. Keep a consistent cap height and relative x-height, otherwise your stem and stroke weights will vary wildly from letter to letter. You can hand in copies of your sketchbook pages or the originals if the drawings were not done in your sketchbook.

Show your sketchbook.

In class, take your alphabet and play with the forms: exaggerate some proportions, push and pull, decorate, assemble letters into words. Now that you know what that alphabet is supposed to look like, time to dress it up and take it to a party.
