These delicate letters seem so fragile. Like me, you might be fooled into thinking they have been quilled, but they are from a personal personal 3D project of Dan Hoopert. They’ve been beautifully constructed with all the swirls and loops.
You might remember Dan’s popular architectural, wireframe letters from a while ago, also made with Cinema 4D.
I had the pleasure of attending BLAB TALKS 17 after work, on Monday 17th Feb and was able to see Sam Gilbey give a great lecture on how he started out as an illustrator - as you can see he has a lot of experience now, and is a very talented illustrator!
For this week’s education story, ‘Reinventing College,’ writer Amanda Ripley literally went back to school. Our assignment for the cover was to evoke a classroom feel while highlighting the breadth of our special report. We turned to chalkboard artist Dana Tanamachi, who spent two days crafting the artwork for us.
In Dana’s words:
“I created this piece using a 4x4-ft. portable chalkboard, which I made by painting a smooth piece of plywood with chalkboard paint. Typically I create editorial pieces in my studio in Brooklyn on a large chalk wall and then have them photographed. But I was just about to leave for a two-week trip to Texas and California, so I created a homemade chalkboard and worked out of a friend’s space in Dallas. Then I transported it over to the Foundry Collective studio to have the piece photographed by my friend Paul Wilkes.”
