INTRODUCTION

You will be creating a series of four quality prints. These prints may be made in foam or in linoleum. Your print must be your chosen letter of the alphabet and must include line pattern and proof of your research of typography and your chosen artist. Please see the ARTIST LIST. It can have up to three colours, but could just be black and white. One of your prints will be used in an actual hand made book and your print will also be used in a published alphabet book that will be sold to raise money for the International School of Manila Scholarship Fund.

IDEAS DEVELOPMENT (In Sketchbook)

*Find an artist in which you are interested, create a pinboard on pinterest showing your research of this artist. Print a screen-shot of your board and highlight the reasons why you chose him or her. Show at least five observations of the elements and or principles he or she uses. Sources should be cited in your research.

*Find at least five types of fonts that you think are suitable for your artist and your idea. This can also be done on pinterest.

*Do two thumbnail sketches of two different ideas for your print with colour or in black and white.
