PRESENTER: Nina Tran


SPONSOR: South Los Angeles Chapter (Solar Nibs)

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Stunt Roman is a playful variation of Roman letters characterized by contrasting round, chonky letters and slender vertical ones.  It was developed and published by William H. Gordon in his “Unique & Eccentric Letters” in 1915 and further developed by Ross F. George, his Speedball partner, in their Speedball Textbooks.

In this 4-hour workshop, we'll be taking our beloved basic monoline Roman letters out for a spin Speedball style!

This workshop will be recorded and available for a month. 


Zoom invitation and handouts, if any, will be sent out a few days prior to workshop date. 


SUPPLY LIST: 

  • Mechanical Pencil (0.5mm or varying sizes, if you have them)

  • Eraser
  • Marker layout paper (e.g. Canson XL, Canson Pro-Layout, Borden & Riley, etc.)

Optional: other monoline tools (e.g. fine liners, gel pens, ball points, fountain pens etc.) Use what you have; don't get crazy.
