Please note that I have a new website, and "Lettering Design Portfolio: Brush Calligraphy" has moved to a new link . If you are coming from Pinterest or other sites where you post lettering and calligraphy I hope you will use the new updated link, as the post on this site will expire soon.
The brush is the most flexible and the most difficult of all lettering tools. Used on rough or absorbent papers it can express a wide range of emotion and drama, or it can be tamed for highly readable and stylized looks with a crisp edge. This collection shows a wide range of projects for the movie industry, publishing, packaging and advertising. I have over a hundred brushes and a stack of various papers five feet high in my studio. Depending on the kind of paper, the brush and the medium used, a slightly different effect emerges each time. To work with the brush you have to be in the moment -- there is no place to hide.
