IAMPETH was a wonderful experience. The highlight of the conference for me was taking a class with Randall Hasson. We explored lettering from the 20's and 30's which included using Speedball A, B, and D nibs. Of course I had these treasures in my collection but I left the class with a real appreciation for what these versatile nibs could do. Randall is a wonderful teacher! I would jump at an opportunity to study with him again in the future.
Once I got home I spent time researching these nibs as well as the styles of lettering from the 20's and 30's. It will be nice to see where this leads. I will end the blog post with a few shots from my garden. The day after I returned from IAMPETH I put on gardening gloves and tackled the weeds. I enjoyed every minute of it! Great to be home. Great to enjoy the splendor of nature, even if it includes weeds.
