I began learning hand lettering with the new year. My love of typography and need for a new challenge spurned this attempt at a new art form. The ampersand is my favorite typographic glyph, because of the possibilities it has for elaborate flourishes and design. I did a hand lettered ampersand that I then digitized on the computer. I filled it with dots to represent the painting style, pointilism, which is one of my favorites.
