The Following Exercises should be posted to your blog Midnight, Wednesday, August 31st:
For this exercise you will create a total of 10 designs, 2 for each typeface, again each on a legal sized document.
Illustrate the space between the lowercase letterforms e and a as well as the space between the lowercase letterforms r and s for each typeface, turning the negative space in between the two letters into positive space. Do not include any closed off counters, any counters inside bowls, or any counters cut off by the left or right edge of the frame, instead, depict the main letterspace, the main counterform between the two letters as a positive shape.
Choose either "ea" or "rs" to draw, the same for each of the five classic typefaces. Pay particular attention to the negative space between the letters, this will be the space at which I will look to judge the success of your drawing. Make a total of 5 drawings with the space in between 2 letters (1 counterform) on each drawing.
For Thursday's quiz, please read pages 10 and 11 of your textbook as well as pages 48 and 49.
