Metropolitan State University of Denver 
Workshop, Digital Collage, Typography

I was invited to give a workshop, portfolio review, and lecture at Metropolitan State University of Denver. This is a selection of characters that were products of a digital collage workshop that took place at the University in November 2017. Participants had access to source images from vintage botanical, entomological, and mineral illustrations. I talked briefly about my experience in digital collage and demonstrated some tips and techniques for non-destructive image editing, cutting out, collaging, and pattern-making using these complex source images. Each student was assigned their own character and together using this technique we built a unique typeface of ornamental letterforms. At the end of the workshop we looked at the body of work and discussed unity and flexibility in the collection of images as a whole.
