All together now

I’ve always loved how words fit together on a page and quietly, magically, bring worlds, portraits, ideas, and memories to life.  It was probably inevitable that I’d fall in love with lettering; with fitting each “W,” “O,” “R,” and “D” together in an effort to make a picture worth a thousand words.

Here are a couple of recent lettering experiments in watercolor and colored pencil in — once again — my Stillman and Birn Beta series sketchbook.  I’ve also been playing with Crowquill lettering in an Epsilon Series sketchbook,  which has lighter paper.  Hopefully I’ll have something to post from that, too, one of these days.

ETA: You can’t quite see it, so I’ll add here that the bottom quote is from Konrad Adenauer.   And the Illustration Friday theme this week is “Together.”
