Quickhand typeface

Inkjet print, 20″x36″, 2016

Process drawings

I revisited the technique I used for the Mend study. Instead of overlapping roman and italic styles of a found typeface, I overlapped my own print/cursive handwriting. I’m still playing with the concept of visualizing 2 sides of the same story by using 2 styles of the same typeface. By switching to my own handwriting, I noticed how time adds another element. As I rewrote lines of letters at different speeds I noticed shapes and angles changed in relationship to my writing speed. This gave me more to think about regarding memory and/or storytelling shared over varying timespans.
