  1. Am thinking that this is far more suited to monoline than to any broad nib – very keen to try it out with a variety of non-traditional markers.

    • Well, yes – these letterforms are definitely easier to do by drawing, using a pencil or mono line tool. They do lend themselves to pressure/ release techiques with a pencil or a flexible pointed nib, and they can be done with a traditional broad nib using pressure/ release and a lot of pen twisting. As I mentioned in my article, I started doing these letterforms after studying Tom Perkins’ work. I think Tom usually draws his letters and then incises them with a chisel.
