Odyssey Conference Class Listing

A5: PAINTERS BOOKS


Annie Cicale Recommended Books
B2598. Watercolorist's Essential Notebook by Gordon MacKenzie.
B2855. Creating Textures in Watercolor by Cathy Johnson.

By Annie Cicale
B2811. The Art & Craft of Hand Lettering by Annie Cicale.
Annie will be taking part in the book signing session / social on Thursday evening.

For calligraphers who need help with design, Annie recommends two books. (Many calligraphers have come to this field via verbal rather than visual routes and may have had little or no design training.)
B3183. Design Language, Interpretive Edition by Tim McCreight.
B2856. DESIGN! A Lively Guide to Design Basics for Artists and Craftspeople by Steve Aimone. Annie: "I love Steve Aimone's Design book."

These are classics that help newer artists learn to understand what visual communication is about. Great for calligraphers who don't come from an art background.
B2313. Art and Fear by David Bayles and Ted Orland.
B2857. The Shape of Content by Ben Shahn.
B1772. Free Play by Stephen Nachmanovitch.
B2052. The Art Spirit by Robert Henri.

Writing tools: favorite pens for drawing, writing and journaling; broad edged, rul¬ing (N22, N30), monoline, other favorites; pointed or flat brushes. Monoline pens such as Pigma Microns (M17), roller ball (M08, M54) and gel ball points. Bring tools you are comfortable with, as we will help you write, but won't be teaching calligraphy, per se. You don't have to bring all of these; we're just listing some options.
Ink: Your favorite black or walnut ink (I53), non-waterproof.
Tools: Pencils; sharpener; eraser (E09); T-square (S623, S692) or rolling ruler (S730); triangle (S464, S613) with metal edge if possible; metal non-slip straight edge 18" (S271); drafting tape (S145); bone folder (S308, S279); small cutting mat (S504); glue brush (inexpensive, with stiff bristles); X-acto knife with #11 (or #15) blades and/or snap-off knife (S621).
Color: Two or more color "systems," including gouache (WNGxxx) and/or watercolor (WNxxx). Others could include col¬ored pencils, pastels, oil pastels, etc. Acrylic paint will be part of your lab fee. A system is red, yellow, blue, plus black and white, and other pigments to broaden your color range.
Paper: Layout bond (P20), tracing paper (P43) and/or graph paper (P21) for planning, assorted art papers (both plain & decorated) for your book. You may want to buy paper at the conference supply store. Some papers will be part of your lab fee.
Misc: Watercolor brushes (BR26, BR27, BR28); pal¬ette (S679, S723); old brushes for mixing gouache; paint rags; apron; glue stick such as UHU (S391); scrap paper for gluing, such as an old phone book; Japanese screw punch (S348), we'll have ones to share but if you have one, it would be very handy; 2 water containers (S731), the larger the better; (beret?)
Note: If you are flying to the confer¬ence, you can skip the bigger items. We can borrow and share.
Materials Fee: $40


N22. Ruling Pen

N30. Folded Ruling Pen
Folded Ruling Pen

Introduced at Letterforum in 1995, this innovative lettering tool has been popular ever since. Use it to produce tight "brush lettering" with a pen or for wild, fun, expressive lettering. These are the originals made by Matthew Coffin and highly praised by Carl Rohrs and Peter Thornton as superior to others that are available.

Peter Thornton has his students use our Polishing Paper (S107) to lightly abrade the outer and inner surfaces of the Folded Pen. This allows the ink to spread out on the pen instead of beading up.
