Luca Barcelona y el arte de la Caligrafía | Bombcelona Graffiti Street Art Hoy he descubierto, de rebote para variar, el website de Luca Barcellona . Un diseñador gráfico y caligrafista italiano, que me ha dejado con la boca abierta. Siempre he sido un fanático de todo lo relacionado con las letras. Entiéndase caligrafía , tipografía , graffiti , y todo lo que el abecedario pudiera englobar a nivel creativo y/u/o artístico. Cuando era un crio, en Barcelona ciudad, y me empezaba a interesar por la escena graffiti local, alucinaba con el uso que le daban a la tipografía escritores como Sendy’s, Akira o Tarantini entre otros (de esto hace ya casi 20 años y desafortunadamente sólo Sendy’s sigue en activo). Todo aquel que estrenado un marker conoce el gustazo de escribir su nombre con el estilillo que una punta nueva proporciona. A partir de hoy, tengo otro ídolo, Luca Barcellona . Os dejo con alguna fotillo suya y con 4 videos sobre su impresionante técnica caligráfica .

Peter Thornton This was the second time we had Peter Thornton come to lead a workshop and we were all really looking forward to the experience! We had chosen to have Peter teach us about Creating Texture - a selection of variations. The only pressure is to know more about creating texture at the end of the day than you knew in the morning. pt We watched demos and then tried the different techniques, building a portfolio of possibilities, remembering that there are basic elements that one can change in order to create a contrast and the texture of a piece of lettering. SizeFormWeightColourDirection orMovementStructureTexture We started out going for legibility, lettering in pencil - WRITING IS MEANT TO BE READ CALLIGRAPHY IS MEANT TO BE LOOKED AT. pt and then change one element to create some visual interest - Clarify your intentions. If you have taken a class with Peter you know that quotes and Peterisms fly around the room constantly. A thing created is loved before it exists.

la Veilleuse Graphique | L'actualité du design graphique, de l'imprimé au webdesign! Calligraffiti Calligraphy for Beginners When it comes to addressing wedding invitations, our first choice is to hire a skilled calligrapher for the task. Unfortunately, that isn't always in the budget. But learning some basics about calligraphy tools can help give your invitations a unique look. By using a pen with a calligraphers pointed tip, you can get the thick and thin flow that is impossible to get from just a regular pen, so even "regular" handwriting has a special look. The best part is the tools are very cheap! Supplies needed: -Speedball Oblique Copperplate Pen Holder $1.89 each-Pointed Nib like Gillott 404 $.76 each -Envelopes-Calligraphy Ink or Goache-watered down $8 First, insert the nib into the pen attachment so it is facing down at a 45 degree angle. Important Tips: -Only put pressure on the pen when you are pulling it in a downward motion, the rest of the strokes should be thin hairlines (that way the nib won't catch on the paper).

Caligraffiti - Design, arte, tecnologia e cultura Susan Skarsgard Washtenaw Community College's yearlong "At the Junction" series at GalleryOne culminates with Susan Skarsgard's "At the Junction: Calligraphic Design." Courtesy of GalleryOne at Washtenaw Community CollegeUntitled giclee inkjet print drawn from the series "26 of 26: An Edition of Twenty-six Alphabets," by Susan Skarsgard, now showing at Washtenaw Community College's GalleryOne. Skarsgard's display is built around the 26 letters of the Latin alphabet via media that range from a short-subject video and a wall scroll to books and art prints, including 26 spectacular sets of a single giclee inkjet series. With two books - the sumi ink, gouache and silver leaf "Alphabet Book" and copper stardream paper "Pop Up Book" - Skarsgard works with the alphabet's natural ally. With "Alphabet Book," slightly larger than 2 feet rectilinear, Skarsgard plays visually with, naturally enough, the alphabet. It's a remarkable show.

Graphic Exchange - The blog of Mr Cup - graphic design, print, identity, products and more... This new deck by Joe White follow the Contraband one. You know Joe and his amazing detailed design as we work together on the (sold out) 2015 edition of the calendar and he designed the front cover. Every single playing card within the High Victorian deck was designed from scratch - even the Aces, Jokers, and court cards exude the grand excess of ornamentation quintessential to the Victorian era. In a word: breathtaking. Antler is a deck designed by Tom Lane, who also creates this year edition of the front cover of the letterpress calendar! This Tobacco Brown back design features two Twin Bucks enshrined within beautiful flourishes that mimic the lush forest of Yosemite National Park. I contact Jeff Trish as I love his design of this deck, and I am pleased to say he participates in this year edition of the calendar too! As both Tom Lane and Jeff Trish participate in this year calendar I propose you 2 packs with the calendar (Deluxe or Normal) and their decks.

More of her work is available on WCC's Flickr stream. One of the alphabets created by Skarsgard for her "26 of 26: An Edition of 26 Alphabets" series. Many artists must work outside their passion to pay the bills, but there are those who reside contently at the crossroads. Her new exhibition, “At the Junction: Industrial Design,” which runs through June 5 at Washtenaw Community College’s Gallery One, follows the long tradition of creating fine art from calligraphy. Skarsgard will discuss her work at a reception and lecture on Tuesday, April 21. “The familiar shapes of the alphabet, taken down to their elemental form and stripped of their meaning, have always been intriguing to me,” Skarsgard said. “I do take seriously the skillful interplay of letters, words, and image as a powerful combination of visual thought,” she said.

Inspiration for CG Artists - ITS ART July | 2011 | Helen Taylor Here’s the finished Vector of the drawn lettering that I up loaded earlier, I need to figure out what to do with it now………………. Maybe a vintage style background? ………………… Here’s the final vector version of the word ‘Imagine’ (Though there are a few things that can be tweaked and added) Here I have tried drawing the word ‘Imagine’ using a font that I recently stumbled upon, this was drawn using the same method used for the Typography poste Above is the typeface I used to create the word Working progress of the I The final word, though it’s not perfect it’s a working progress A more finished version of the image above, it still not quite there yet………………. From the previous designs I came up with the final design, the final changes to the badge include changing the body of the bird and typeface used, this was changed to helvetica. For this project I had to create a book titled ‘Tempus Fugit’ (Time Flies), all the imagery with the book relate to lyrics ‘My!
