 NOLAA’s final meeting of the year will be a hands-on mini-workshop in designing interlocking script monograms. Whether drawing two- or three- letter combinations, vertical or slanted script, the principles by which we interlock initials into monograms remain the same.
Yvette Rutledge of Mystic Blue Signs studied monogram design while training as a hand engraver and has designed monograms professionally for many years.
She and her husband Vince Mitchel will demonstrate the principles for joining copperplate and  vertical scripts, along with methods for variation and finishing.

Participants can use tracing paper to reposition sample letters provided by Eve and Vince, or use flexible pointed nibs to draw their own. Transfer paper will be provided for carboning the design onto good paper before final inking.
