My often co-working calligrapher got a job in a restaurant near Holborn, to write their menu on the mirror. She is a really good calligrapher but never liked height, so we decided I go up on the ladder.
We used Uni Posca pen, 15mm and 8mm chisel edged. Trying to see the colours on site – red or black…
They decided to use red, so we ruled up, made all guide lines following our draft.
Done two mirrors in three hours. Once you start writing, it was quick but ruling lines up took quite long time.
I loved bigger lettering which I used 15mm pen. Strong thick colour.
Later that week I get to do a lots of text on mini cards which you have to squeeze your lettering down to 2mm x-height … which was not that fun!
