TITLE: Cut Letter #3

#1: This work was done by Dave Flattery this year in Boston for the first month class "Modernizing a Traditional Calligraphic Hand: Blackletter".
This work is cut from gray Fabriano paper. It is 16" x 17" . I started out with a Coit 3/8 inch pen. I then traced over those letters adding swells and waists.
Next I tried to arrange the words in lines. The problem area was "another" above "till" because of the ascenders. I tried many times but each time came
up with a bad spot. When I would start over I always started from the top again. When I got to the problem spot and tried to fix it the domino affect would mess up everything I did above it. It took me a bunch of tries before thinking of starting with "the problem area" and working outward.

#2. This work was done by Amy Bebee in Philadelphia for the session “Variations on Romans”, in 26 Seeds: a Year to Grow.

Materials: watercolor, collage pieces, gouache for lettering.  I will always remember the year long class with much pleasure & appreciation for the great time we had & for the great teaching we got. It's an honor to be on your pic list. Thanks so much for everything!!! Amy Beebe (I'm guessing 18 x14" for size)
