week 4 - calligraphy

In calligraphy, we worked with paint brushes and ink to create words and sentences in a calligraphic style. The flat head brushes worked the best in making the letters thicker at the bottom, in the traditional calligraphy style. We started off by writing the alphabet, capitals and lower case letters, with the paintbrush, this naturally causes the letters look like calligraphy. I then experimented with writing my name and various sentences to practice the writing style. The aim was then to create a bottle label for an alcoholic beverage. I decided to focus on a lager brand named 'Silly and Tone's Lager'. This was inspired by some of my relatives with these names that make lager in their home in Sussex.
