Vanishing Point by Boz Scaggs

I have always liked these lyrics from Boz’s song. It’s something to letter while practicing!  

Song Lyric

Copperplate practice

Copperplate practice 8.22

I went to the IAMPETH conference in early August in Indianapolis and loved it!  I had never lettered with pointed pen before this and was nervous.  I took Engrossers Script with Bob Hurford on the first day and loved it.  He is a great teacher.   I have been practicing ever since and this is my Engrossers/Copperplate alphabet for today!  I can see that I need work on many of the letters!  🙂

I used a Nikko G nib with Moon Palace Sumi Ink.
