Following the project briefing things you need to do before your first lesson in the new project are:
Choose 5 letters and 2 numbers (these could be from your name/date of birth or just randomly selected), try to get a range of different characteristics in the letters/numbers - curved, straight, open, contained spaces etc.
For each of these 7 characters find 5 varied examples (35 characters in total) find your examples from a range of sources - e.g. Font websites, magazines, newspapers.
Cut out/print out all these letterforms and bring them to your next session (a large envelope is a good way to keep them together).
You should also complete 2 pages of research into the letter/number inspired works of Jasper Johns - try to find a range of his images in this style, so ideally some drawings/prints and some paintings.
As always with research consider layout carefully, keep pages busy and visually stimulating. The written content is also important, provide a brief section of background information about the Artist, but make sure you go on to analyse individual works in some detail.
You will need an A3 sketchbook for this new project. Either softback stapled @£3 (you are quite likely to fill 2 of these) or hardback ringbound @£8 (one should do it).
