Week #23
This work was done by Tomoko Zunino in Seattle in 2015 for the session “Brush Lettering” in 26 Seeds: a Year to Grow. In her own words:
In between classes, my husband and I went to Paris on vacation and I wanted to create something always to reminds us of the trip.

The letterform is Neuland written in black gouache with a Hiro #8 nib on Arches Watercolor HP paper.

I also wanted you to feel like you were walking in Paris. I decided to use the map of Paris as a background paper and drew some famous sightseeing spots as decorated letters; “A” for La tour Eiffel, “O” for Tricolore, “I” for Obélisque de Louxor at Place de la Concorde, “O” for Catacombes de Paris and “M” for Basilique du Sacré-Cœur.

Before cutting out the counter spaces with a x-acto knife, I placed the calligraphy piece on the map to see how it would look. It was not as dramatic as I was hoping for. I realized they needed some colors, and added 7 French logos which you might see on Les Champs-Élysées.
Paper size approximately 10”×25”.


At the Champs- Élysées

At the Champs- Élysées

In the sun, under the rain

At noon or at midnight

There is everything you want

At the Champs- Élysées
