BVCG - Feb 2020 Lettering Challenge - Week 3

Created: February 10, 2020

I usually love challenges and this one is right up my alley. 

ID: "Outdoorsy"
Size: 7"w x 7"h

I recently came across someone writing with a fork... I tried it, but found it was easier using my stimudent. It held the ink better.

I wrote out the word using most of my Calligraphica Crystals using the stimudent tool I had made eons ago on white Staples 110# cardstock.

Wrote the word agin using my 3.8 Parallel pen and Sumi ink.

ID: "Pineapple" 
Size: 6"w x 6"h

I drew a couple circles to create a pineapple slice. Colored with Prisma colored pencils. Wrote the letters using a 3.8 Parallel pen and Sumi ink.

ID: "Quizzing"
Size: 8"w x 4"h

I came across this lettering style on Pinterest (type font by Andrey Chernevich "MCF Perun 2016") and really liked it so tried doing it . doing this using a 3.8 Parallel Pen and Sumi ink of Staples #110 white cardstock. Some of the ends should have round endings, but c'est la vie... Added some Prisma colored yellow pencil detail.

ID: "Resurrection"
Size: 6"w x 6h

When I bought my Bister inks, I first dispensed them in a small palette.  Since then I put them in jars, but still had some dried left over inks in the palettes, so wet them and just brushed them onto Canson Biggie watercolor paper, misted with lots of water, then pressed a 2nd piece of watercolor paper into the mess. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the results. When dry I misted both pieces to get a nice distressed look.

Wrote the word with Bleed Proof white ink and a flat edge brush. When dry shadow outlined with the micron pen.

ID: "Successful"
Size: 5"w x 6.5"h

Used the bullet tip of the Zig Writer to write my letters but upright and on their side and interlocking some. Used various colors of Prisma colored pencils.

ID: "Trendsetter"
Size: 6"w x 6"h

I penciled in my letters, then drew all the lines to break them apart. Used the Micron .02 pen to accent a few of them and my Daniel Smith watercolors for the rest. Shadowed with graphite and a paper stump.


ID: "Unbutton"
Size: 4.5"w x 6"h

I raided my gelli print stash and came out with this stenciled circle design - perfect for buttons done on some misc book binding paper... Drew a bunch of small circles to fit my letters into. Painted them with the "Opera" Holbein" gouache. Wrote the letters with a gold gel pen, accented with the micron pen. Added black dots/circles for all the buttons.
