Week #39
This work was done by Gail Robichaud in Boston this year for the session “Variations on Romans” in 26 Seeds: a Year to Grow. In her own words:
In doing the same quote by Albert Einstein in three different Roman lettering styles, my objective was to make "Logic" appear solid and "Imagination" appear fluid and colorful.

The first piece that appears to be fragments is done in sumi with a half-ruling pen. My objective was to use the entire quote but to make the quote illegible. In this way the reader may use their imagination as to the meaning. The color is colored pencil and there are three gilded circles.
In the Neuland rendition, the lettering and lines are done in sumi ink with the logic part colored in graphite. The imagination portion is done in colored pencil to suggest liveliness.

The third piece is done in watercolor and sumi. Different watercolors were applied to one brush and then dragged across the page. Sumi was then used to write the logic portion so that it appears more solid and the imagination section more free flowing.
