Cooper Union script lettering drawing pencil sketch flourish spencerian hand-drawn pen cursive penmanship calligraphy

I drew this lettering as a warm-up for a number of workshops that I'm leading at Cooper Union this Fall.

The letter style riffs off on an exaggerated 19th-century American ornamental penmanship hand, which was later popularized during the 1970s and 80s by legends like Tony DiSpigna and Tom Carnese. Click the photo on my site to see a larger image:
