Drawing / Crosshatch Typography
October 21, 2013 § Leave a comment
This is first of three drawing workshops, today we looked at mimicking type, next week we’ll study the drawing type, and the third week we’ll be looking at 3D type and the use of materials that allow light through. Rob introduced us to the use of cross hatch sketching,
Factors to experiment with include:
– thickness of hatching
– serifs & san serifs
– elements of letter form
You can then refine characters by going over them with more hatching and lines, let the hatching process reveal the form, don’t rush it.Here’s the sheet I produced during the session, I think I rushed mine though, also I’m not the greatest of drawers, the forms I do like within this sheet though are the curly Fs, the £ and l.
