Awhile back I did some handwriting explorations based on personal ads. I have recently revisited the idea with a new approach, seeing how photographic story telling can be added into the mix. Here are a few of the recent mini-stories. Each one uses a different kind of pen and is composed from my photographic backgrounds.
Unlike fonts, hand lettered scripts have an authentic quirkiness and variation. As a handwriting artist I channel voices. Each personality calls forth a different way of holding the pen and putting down thought. I love the theater of it -- I get to put on a new costume each time! I will post more of these personal ads soon--one is actually real, and the rest are conplete fiction.
