New Year Wishes
As I go into the new year with the ongoing intention of not planning ahead in my work, I let the tools, the materials, and what I was feeling guide me in my lettering as I wrote this greeting with a Speedball C-4 nib and Higgins Eternal Ink on everyday paper. After several variations on a numerical 2015, I decided to go with the year written out in words. I usually write things out from 5 to twenty times (5 here) and choose the one I like best to scan into Photoshop. I may have known it once but couldn't remember how to turn black lettering on white into the reverse. My visting son gave me the simple key command: command I (or image-adjustments-invert). Magic!
