The Letter "A"


Hey there,

Day 12 with less than 15 minutes to go.  This is me doing an exercise in Typography.  I bought a few typography books from Readers Feast and was inspired to try and designing my own letters.  This is actually 1 out of the 10 designs I made tonight  I did this one while sitting in a tram to go to this film meeting this evening.  I managed to get up to the letter C while on the tram and then  I drew another 8 at the film meeting.  Is it cheating if I post up a letter each day as an illustration/drawing?  26 letters may get a bit boring I suppose....but I did have fun designing letters tonight.  No pencils, all done with a 0.3 Copic fine liner and then brought into Photoshop.

I was very busy today.  Sent of my very first PDF of my illustrations to a company, not too bad considering it's my first time in doing a PDF but I spotted some errors only after I sent it!  Gah!  That will teach me to do too many things at the same time.  The pictures are pretty though.  I am pleased on my progress as an artist in that department.  Now to see if I can actually do it professionally!  Blocked out one of my more difficult shots for this Pilot and emailing people about other gigs and meet ups and hikes...there really isn't a lot of time during the day!!!  I need to finish my Monster Loop still!  Progress is sooooo slow for that one :(  Sob!
