More and more in search of original shapes, I continue to experiment with lettering and distortions.
Here are two small compositions (there should be 4 in the end) with the alphabet and Arabic numerals which makes a total of 6² (easy to lay out).
A verse by Walt Whitman to tell you that I love his poetry.
And also that I have scheduled a course on lettering.
Not just any lettering, no. Ferret lettering!
Well, okay, it’s just my own version of lettering but it’s still pretty nice, isn’t it?
So, there’s a course in person and in French in my workshop beginning of July, details here.
An online and in English course, still in July, info & registration here
And an online and French version in September, info & registration there.
Here are two small letters just out of the workshop.
I am reinterpreting the filigree puzzles as I will present them at the Abbey of Maredret during a workshop organized by Interligne in March 2022.
Here we read the first name in the cut of the vertical shaft of the letter, with gilding for the counter shape of the final E.
And here I am having fun with a flower shape that comes to “eat” the letter and decorate it at the same time with copper leaf gilding.
Today is my wife’s birthday.
As I didn’t know what to give her, I started to create a new currency (kisses) and I started with a big banknote, 1 million !
Cashable only with me and in nature 🙂
The photo is printed (yes, I know, I should have done it by hand but that’s one of the many things I don’t know how to do).
Gold leaf for the control strip and the dot of the i, embossing for the number, everything else is done in watercolor, different dilutions of Payne’s grey.
I had a leftover blue, so I took a piece of paper and filigree. The circle in the center is about 2.5cm in diameter.
And I’d like to take this opportunity to tell you that there are still a few places left for the online course on filigree that will take place this weekend. During this course we will discuss the elements present in this little realization.

It is often difficult to find compositions to enhance a short sentence or a single word.
Luckily, there are solutions!
You are a star !
I’m offering a class on puzzle versals and how to use them for small compositions.
It will take place on November 13th & 14th, more information and registration on this page.
And don’t forget, we are all stars!
