Blackletter Circle - Friendship Is The Only

Tamer Ghoneim is giving free uTube demos, usually on Monday evenings demoing various circular and other shape designs for Blackletter calligraphy. The recordings can be found on Blackletter Foundry. I love his style. In the most recent one he used a purple double dipped into Pearlescent Genesis Green. People who were watching said he should use black and gold for the extra colors... I wondered what red would look like so I created my own...

On Strathmore 300 Series Bristol Vellum surface using a 2.4 Parallel pen filled with Ecoline "Blue Violet" and double dipped into the Genesis green. Created the circles using an EK Success Circle Scissor gadget with a pencil (not available anymore - sorry).

Formula: Write out your text with the nib and in the lettering style you'll use. Measure it and do a radius calculation. (C=2πR) or R=C2π If the length (circumference) of my work is 15", (π= 3.14) so 2π = 6.28. Divide 6.28 into your circumference of 15" and you get basically a radius of 2.4". 

Colored between the letters with a red Zig Writer and a red Pentel Colorbrush pen. Used a Uniball Signo gold gel pen (my favorite). Wrote the quote also in a monoline in the center with a Micron pen.
