About the Workshop
Gathering all calligraphy, lettering, journaling, and bullet journaling enthusiasts in the South Bay and beyond! In these meetups, I want to focus on bringing together a community of local creatives who has an interest in calligraphy, lettering, typography, drawing, journaling, and more. ALL levels and experience are welcome. No really. ALL LEVELS.
For the third meetup, we have yet another lettering/calligraphy challenge, see below. I hope this exercise will help inspire and spark our creativity, but also guide us to practice and help us grow in our lettering/calligraphy journey.
Challenge: The challenge for this week's meetup is to write out one Upppercase letter of your choice in 10 or more styles. To help you with this challenge, try using the adjectives below as a prompt for the style of your letter. These are only to help guide you, you're welcome to approach it any way you like.
Write a version of your chosen Uppercase Letter that corresponds to the adjective:
Along with this meetup, we will have a small presentation on a beautiful script called Spencerian. We will have a chance to try our hand at it too or if you already are familiar with the script, you're welcome to practice!
