Risograph-printed pages of images of hand painted lettering
Spreads from a forthcoming zine to remix some of my archival lettering practice into something new

I thought I was ready to hang up my brushes after an unintended but quite long break from painting, but my recent foray into reverse glass gilding has suggested otherwise.

Prior to even starting that project I had begun to scan and experiment with what I might do with some of my old painted lettering practice sheets. What I found was that with enough layers they start to get visually interesting in a new way, which has since turned into a small(-ish) 16 page zine project that is nearly finished. I just need to finish the covers, trim, fold, and assemble. So… lots still to do.
