BVCG - Nov 2019 Lettering Challenge - Week 1

Created: November 2, 2019

I usually love challenges and this one is right up my alley. All words done on Staples 110# white cardstock.


ID: "Angels"
Size: 6.5"w x 3"h

Funky lettering done with various pencils (H & 2B) and blended with a paper stump. Ann Purdy from our Guild uploaded a shadowed letter in 2015 and I fell in love with it... trying to emulate her style....

ID: "Blizzard" 
Size: 8"w x 4"h

This style of funky lettering is something I saw on Pinterest in 2013 and fell in love with this as well. I fall in love a lot...

Done with the fine tip of a black Zig Writer and a .005 Micron pen.

ID: "Candy Cane"
Size: 8"w x 3"h

This lettering style is something I saw on Peter Taylor's website (from Brisbane Aus.) and again fell in love... done with a 6.0 Parallel Pen and Sumi ink. Candy cane stripes made with a white Sakura gelly roll .08 pen.

ID: "Decorations"
Size: 7"w x 3"h

Hand drawn decorated capital letter done using a black Zig Writer.

Lower case letters done with a 3.8 Parallel pen and Sumi ink in a more or less Foundational style. details made with a white Sakura gelly roll .08 pen.

ID: "Eggnog" 
Size: 6"w x 2"h

I used a 3.8 Parallel pen and Sumi ink in an Uncial style hand. Used a 2B pencil and paper stump for the shadowing.

ID: "Frosty The Snowman" 
Size: 5.5"w x 4"h

This whimsical lettering style is a take I saw from a piece done by Rachel Yallop in 2016. She had written the word thanks and I created my version of the rest of the alphabet from that.

I used a 6.0 Parallel pen and Sumi ink.

ID: "Gingerbread House" 
Size: 5"w x 4"h

This lettering style is something else I saw on line with no attribution. I sued a 2.4 Parallel Pen and Sumi ink
