@kayrun I think that’s basically it. It feels like the deconstructed parts of letters that we will put back together later.
I’m getting somewhat more consistent with my drills, and definitely better with the pen, which I found to be thinner/less “juicy” for certain strokes, particularly the “C” and up strokes. The Fude Ball pen was just ok. I had to keep scribbling off page to get the ink to flow smooth.

I love the “world’s most urbane schoolboy” vibe . The competition’s just really tight for that spot. (Although who am I kidding; if you gave me ten spots I’d still probably be trying to squeeze in an alternate.)
Today’s lettering drills. I’m finding that I’m not a huge fan of slow lettering and the letters I like best and are smoothest are the ones where I write a bit faster. Will be interesting to see if that changes at all during the class.
Which didn’t make them any better. So today I started making marks all over which still didn’t bring them together so I started laying out some black construction paper cutouts on top to see how reductive painting would work
