It’s a new year and there’s a perfectly awesome excuse to have a nicely planned year-long project. Even though, I am 5 days late.. First, a backstory- i’ll try to keep it short.
For my portfolio in 2014, I developed my first abecedarium and named it Whimsy. It was an incredible experience, and I am ready to do it again. And recently, I started the Handlettered ABCs alphabet challenge and that’s when I got my “lightbulb” moment.
See- that was short ^_^
So my plan is this: 12 months, 12 tools, 12 abecedariums.
January – Sai Watercolor Pens with Ballpoint Pens for shadowing. February – Calligraphy with a Nib
March – Watercolor Aquash Pen
April – Chalk
May – Wood Soldering Tool
June – Oil Sharpie on Mugs
July – Micron Pens
August – Rubber Cement as Masking Liquid
September – Etch Cream
October – Finger Paint
November – Quill
December – Crayons
*this might change.
These sound like so much fun, I can’t wait!
