Carl Rohrs Chicago Workshop - Part 9


Here is one of my samples from the class. This was done with the 3/8" Horizon folded pen and walnut ink. Carl suggested the Horizon pen for our broad-edged lettering. The word "Types" here shows quite a few of the techniques Carl taught--the little "flick" on the top right portion of the "y" and "p", as well as the bottom right of the "e"; the pushing strokes at the bottom of the "y", "p" and "s". This word also demonstrates the splitting up of the ducti--a bit more dynamic treatment of the letterforms.

See my Flickr page for more lettering samples here.

There's beauty in the details. This was very interesting. Thanks for sharing Julie.
