This was a very active day. After this demo, I went to the Stonehouse Bakery to sort out some things about my show with Patrick, the owner. Then I went back over to the Museum of Flight for a lecture on “Space Medicine”. The day ended with an exciting and wonderful concert by San Jose Taiko – photos https://redharp.smugmug.com/MKB/2017-0408-San-Jose-Taiko/
The first event of the day was Janice Berkebile’s lettering demo at Daniel Smith Seattle. She is changing the format of her workshops and this demo shows how she will now be incorporating lettering into journal pages.
She described her process: drawing in pencil, scanning, drawing letters and painting.
She also shared some on line resources for fonts.
Type Deconstructed http://www.typographydeconstructed.com/ best website for anatomy of letters.
Val Webb https://valwebb.wordpress.com/workshops-online-classes/ has a lettering class on line
My take-away quote:
“Lettering doesn’t have to be perfect but it does need to look intentional”.
