Fraktur writing for the Legacy of Letters italian tour, organize by Paul Shaw, NYC.
This is great. What is he writing with?!
What is he writing with?
looks like a copic fatty.
That was ridiculously good.
Wow looks great!
Sooooooooooooooooooo beautiful, it almost hurts
Did I just watch 5 minutes of an Italian fella writing 3 words and some change?
Yes I did. I wouldn’t give it back if you asked, and I would recommend it to others!
I was paralyzed while watching it, unable to stop or do anything. It reminded me a bit in that aspect of this video of a Japanese man ironing a shirt like a freaking boss: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IeA9gH_iWXY – it was accurately summarized to me 2 days later, as “ironing porn”.
Wow, awesome. Literal awe.
And to think guys like this were plentiful 50 years ago. Now, not so much.
like michael dohrn, i was paralyzed. just in awe. so awesome.
Luca was using a chisel-edged brush (synthetic hairs if I remember correctly) with gouache. No retouching. No photoshopping. Just direct writing.
He was part of the Legacy of Letters 2010 tour of the Veneto and Emilia-Romagna and Alta Price and I hope he will join us for next year’s tour as well. Anyone interested in the 2011 tour should contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Luca Barcellona rocks :)
I am actually a bit moved by this…
I have to correct my earlier comment. I thought the video was of Luca writing Legacy of Letters during his demonstration at the Tipoteca. But this must be a warm-up since the tool he is using is not a chisel-edged brush as he used for his demonstration at the Tipoteca but a Copic marker (a Japanese brand). Luca brought a bag of such markers with him to the Tipoteca. He cuts his tips on the bias rather than leaving them flat. The markers—which come in about 9 different colors—have wide tips that are good for large writing. I use them for teaching calligraphy.
absolutely brilliant, and the design of the letters is just awesome
Absolutely gorgeous — both in process and the result.
That’s a Copic marker! (WIDE body style)
Copic markers are the BEST markers on the planet.
Refillable, reusable, replaceable tips.
