This year-long lettering journey is inspired by a different master each month. With a sneak-peek into their studios and practices, we will have the opportunity to learn how those working as visual practitioners, calligraphers, and graffiti artists use the same tools we use—and introduce us to new ones—to make letters. So grab your markers and let’s go!
This month we wrap up the year by lettering with Anthony Weeks from San Francisco, CA where he works as an illustrator, documentary filmmaker, and visual storyteller. He has more than 18 years of experience working with senior-level product and strategy development teams to think visually and turn data into stories. In the role of public listener and illustrator, Anthony collaborates with project teams to create visually rich chronicles and murals of conversations in real time. The visual storytelling facilitates dialogue, engages participation, clarifies vision, and animates the process of ideation.
Anthony holds a Master in Fine Arts from Stanford University, a Master of Social Work from Augsburg College (MN), and a BA from Grinnell College. He was a 1997-98 Coro Fellow in Public Affairs.
NOTE: THIS IS A SINGLE SESSION
In this ~2 hour session, Anthony shares how he uses:
• size and color to define hierarchy
• layering of information in ways to show dimension of conversations
• tone to reflect the stories being shared
All in an effort to Listening to Letter and Lettering to Listen.
Be sure to have the following supplies on hand:
• Paper to take sketchnotes and practice some of the techniques Anthony shares but in your own style.
• A variety of markers and pens
• Stylistic exemplars
• Outtakes and pre-session content offered as an aftershow
Please be patient as the PDF and video downloads. It may take a few minutes.
