Drawn Lowercase

With Jurgen Vercaemst

Starting Date : 18 Feb 2023

Fees : HK$ 1,170 or US$ 150

Workshop Description

The workshop will start off with a simplified lowercase letter (Hermann Zapf’s Palatino sans ultra) and will do the simple skeletal forms with pencil. From the start we will use the pressure-release principal which makes every letter already so much more exciting.

Every line counts, the basic and most important words are slow and very little pressure. We will be exploring different rhythms and styles. And we will try to combine these letterforms with simple structures using only lines.

After that we will be drawing the letter, taking great care with ‘filling up’ the letter. Shadowing, contouring, using different thicks and thins, drawing serifs, pushing the letterforms. We move on to the fineliner and Speedball C-5 to draw these letters.
