ECS April 2021 Challenge



ECS (Edmonton Calligraphy Society) April 2021 Challenge was to create 3 versions of the same quote. Since I had done something I like for the Scribbled Lives challenge, I thought I'd expand on that one. Plus I'm doing some of the homework for my Italics class with Barbara Close...

The last image is one you've probably seen already. I posted it a couple days ago, but click on any image for more info. Enjoy

Practicing Italic and Fraktur...


Practicing Italic and Fraktur...

I'm taking a 3 session Italic class with Barbara Close. The1st one was last Tuesday. I've always been frustrated with Italic. There are so many variations. It's so confusing and I get it mixed up with Foundational and Carolingian and others. Sigh. So I decided to try taking another class, maybe it will sink in this time. 

So my practicing has become a card for someone...

Both lettering pieces are done with a 6.0 Parallel pen double dipped into various colors of Holbien gouache, then in the in between areas with a 3.0 Parallel pen.

The Edmonton Calligraphy Society had an enrichment session this past Wednesday evening with Sachin Shah (@shinhanart). Love his style of Blackletter and other takes. So for this ZOOM class he showed us Fraktur caps. PS he's one of the main lettering artists in the 25 Speedball text edition. I'm looking forward to getting mine soon.

Needless to say I could use a lot more practice with both lettering styles...

Barbara Close Zoom Class - Boxes & Textures - Oh My!

Barbara Close Zoom Class - Boxes & Textures - Oh My! Our guild BVCG had Barbara Close do a ZOOM class. I always love taking a clas with Barbara. I love her style and she's such a wonderful teacher and person.

So I did all the exercises during class and then today added some calligraphy and other accents and then made greeting cards with them. This way they won't languish in a drawer... or get shoved aside for the hundreds of other things that occupy my days... 

Anyway, click image to see larger images and details of all the cards. Enjoy

When I created my 1st couple of flag booklets I was very upset that I couldn't see everything at a glance without having to hold the previous pages out of the way. So I mulled it over. The result is so simple it's crazy...
