Contemporary Script Portfolio One: Calligraphy With Brush, Pen and Marker

This contemporary script portfolio shows work that has been created for a variety of clients for application in packaging, advertising and publishing. I blend years of training in Asian brush work with a love of typographic precision to create these letterforms. You could call my approach to modern calligraphy, Basho meets Hermann Zapf — not that I am anywhere near achieving the of mastery of these wizards!  My goal is always to put the word first, and to use style to find the right voice for what is being expressed. This collection of work is created with brush, pen, and various other mark-making tools, scanned and vectorized for final reproduction when needed.
