Hi Dave, I have been to Fieldtrip just last week and I really like your work. I remember you've mentioned that you hold workshops, do you have any upcoming workshops for lettering or calligraphy ? Thanks

Hey, if you’re interested in participating in a lettering only (not combined with letterpress) workshop, please get in touch via email: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will add you to a list of interested participants. Cheers!
This is some process behind my latest work, an article opener for Australian Geographic (Sept-Oct Issue 116). It shows roughly 380+ Aboriginal tribes and dialects in their respective locations.
From top to bottom:
The finished piece.
Pencil sketches figuring out positions and locations.
3 shots of final inking on tracing paper (A3).
Scans overlapped and aligned in Photoshop.
Animation showing before and after adjustments made to scans.
A view of my adjustment layer which took about 8 hours.
Dialog window showing more than a million points in illustrator.
Forgive me for being so inquisitive, but I was wondering if you could talk about what drew you to the Type and Media course from the Royal Academy of Art, and any advice you could impart for someone who is interested in attending.
