Brush Work and Lettering

BRUSHWORK
And Lettering

A few examples of  lettering  done with a brush not a pen.

Arabic is usually written with a pen however in China they use brushes.





a more typical use of chinese brushes
to shape strokes fine and broad for both letter shapes and the curves of the flowers


A close up of an asian style brush in use


but the angle  and finger position actually isnt all that different from western brush lettering.

The major difference is the angle of the board


Something to think about?

Has the use of a flat screen thats vertical effected modern lettering style and design and digital typography?
