How wonderful to see the next gen taking the leap into mastering the ruling pen and painted letters!
Emily Maxwell, Graphic Design ’17 and her first foray into ruling pendom, “Cheers”, acrylic on canvas. You go, girl!
Em and I are doing an Independent Study together investigating the connection between drawing and lettering, and it really looks like the fire has been lit. She’s drawing and crafting like a beast, which is what it takes. Like my grandfather used to say, “Hard work ain’t easy.” Thankfully, love of letters tends to fan the flame!
