Project Description

Your name in Fauxlligraphy

The project for this class will be simple so you can start getting comfortable with the technique.

I want you to hand letter your name using the fauxlligraphy technique. Of course I would like to see your process. Show me your sketches, practices, errors, pets, everything.

The more you share with me the more I can help you :) 

Feel free to start your project even before you're done with your final piece.

Deliverables:

Name sketch

Final inked name sketch

Optional Deliverables:

Alphabet practice samples

Single word practice samples
