Letter Studies: Graffiti Style Letter “P”

On December 29, 2012, in Letter Studies, by The Gone 84

p25Well here we have it.  As promised(for once), before the new year, the letter P in simple graffiti style. I will admit to being short on ideas for this one but I was looking at a deadline for a change and the Holidays caught up with me a bit.  Still, like before, there are tons of different ways to represent this letter if you just let your imagination run with it.  Practice is always the key because it helps to loosen the brain a bit and that only comes with repetition.

By this point in our studies I’d expect you to be putting together words with all of these letters and attempting different compositions and ways to make the letters work together.  I keep these things simple for a reason and that reason is to show you structure.  Once you have a structure set to habit then the rest really does start to make itself happen.  I know some of you are out there shortcutting the game and just plain copying letter by letter.  If that’s what works for you then fine, I’m glad to be a part of your learning process.  But I will be honest in telling you that until you start practicing shape and structure you won’t get very far in being able to express yourself the way that someone who actually looks deeper than the examples would.  So don’t be a slouch, the time you spend doing it the “easy” way can be much better spent doing it thouroughly and actually learning something that will take you beyond the realm of this page!  Once I get the gallery going again I’d like to see some of the progress people are making and I’ll gladly answer any questions you may have so keep the emails coming!

Happy New Year!
