Whether you work big or small, chances are you have wondered what itā€™s like to bridge the spectrum and do both.

In this lesson you will learn:

How to wield brush nib markers like a pro.

Mike Gold, master calligrapher, spent his career as a Senior Lettering Designer at American Greetings exploring what letters can do at all sizes: big and small. Adept at various mark-making tools, he creates masterpieces and often shares variations of an exercise called Power of Two in his contemporary calligraphy classes.

Heather Leavitt Martinez, visual practitioner and lettering artist, has been named the 'god parent' of the Neuland BigOneĀ® Art marker and uses it in most all of her rapid capture work. She has designed and interpreted more than a dozen lettering styles that can be created with Neuland markers, most of which using the brush nib.

You will also learn how to:

  • Hold the markers to get the most variation of line,
  • Manage angle, trajectory, pressure, and speed,
  • Create works of art that you can give, share, and show off,
  • And finally get the most out of the largest and smallest brush nibs in the world.
Mike and Heather have been having fun since their one-and-only, in-person debut at Seattletters where Heather graphic recorded Mike's talk that was later published in Letter Arts Review. Since then, they have been crossing paths online in Zoom classes and workshops.

Fill your empty BigOneĀ® Art marker with FUN!

Wondering what to fill your BigOneĀ® Art marker with?
In this video, I will show you how to fill it and what I recommend filling it with and what inks to avoid.

For the calligraphers in the house...

Did you know that you can use well-diluted Bister inks and walnut ink IN your BigOneĀ® Art marker? I recommend going with yellow or a very diluted color, then mix up some other colors to dip the nib into for gradients and other variations.

It's not everyday that Mike and Heather get together to make letters and have fun. Celebrate Ampersand day with them and celebrate the two things that go well together: Big and Small letters.

Together they're like...

  • Laurel & Hardy (funny)
  • Marlin & Dory (seeking adventure...ahem, while being lost most of the time)
  • Thelma & Louise (outrageous and brave)
  • peanut butter & jelly
