Papyrus_Shoe_INK_a-768x1024Illustration and lettering by Elvis Swift

Due to my teaching obligations with the freshmen next week, we will have a shortened class. Come to Shaffer room 332 at 4 till 6pm. Bring with you sketches for your scriptcalligraphy assignment. Do test strips with your materials, your tools. your paper. Choose a word or phrase that is eloquently, smartly expressed by the style of your lettering. Purposefully choose a formal or informal style of lettering. You can design your word or phrase with thumbnails and penciled onto the board or paper, but make your mark in one fell swoop, using the tool to define the strokes.
