I haven’t been able to stop thinking about Xu Bing’s Square Word Calligraphy since learning about it, so here’s some noodling around.
Quick new years doodle from the other day.
Jumping on a plane in a few hours. See ya soon, Chicago.
Hey, Seattle friends. I’ll be on Capitol Hill tomorrow peddlin’ my wares if you’d like to get holiday shopping done early.
The event is 21+, no cover, and there will be $5 mimosas all day~
Oh, glory, I think I see you ‘round the bend.
I think about this constantly.
Full piece I did for the Zodiac Zine. Happy new year.
Playing around with script lettering.
Lyrics by Mika (the music video for this song is NSFW).
An average number of pages of lettering to go through trying to get things just right (or as right as they’re gonna get before I get sick of words).
DON’T KNOW ♪
More BNHA scribbles… I really love the opening theme’s lyrics.
INKED opens on April 1st.
Some brush calligraphy experiments from a month or so ago.
In case you were wondering how many sketches it takes to do a lettering thing, this is about half of it. 8D;;
A designy thing I did for @mightier ~ it was lots of fun! I was really excited for the chance to work on lettering stuff for someone else, even if it was also kinda nerve wrecking, haha. 8D;
Fox, bird, dragon. And some other stuff.
Sorting through photos from the last few months today and found this hilarious bunch of photos of the hell I went through trying to get the words JUST RIGHT for this piece.
I went through about 40-50 sheets of rice paper and at least a dozen pages of notebook, only to discard most of it. :D I ended up trashing all the handlettered English to use a font, hahahaha.
Stuff for a thing. Gotta draw two dozen clouds to get the perfect one. <_<
Last night’s #hato_69min!
Happy New Year! :D
Happy New Year!
Have some quick derp calligraphy I did to send a photo to my grandparents! I can usually guesstimate stoke order pretty well, but anytime look at traditional characters I’m all what is ??? ¿¿¿¿ stroke order ???? so I almost always end up just doing simplified, haha…
Some word scribbles.
