Lettering



What is it?

The lettering artist uses any technique appropriate to the job to draw letters, unlike the calligrapher, who generally uses the familiar strokes of the pen.

Colleen Doran

Colleen Doran is an American writer/artist, film conceptual artist, and cartoonist.

She has illustrated hundreds of comics, graphic novels, books and magazines, and dozens of stories and articles, including works written by Neil Gaiman, Clive Barker, Joe R. Lansdale, Anne Rice, J. Michael Straczynski, Peter David and Tori Amos, including The Sandman, Wonder Woman, Legion of Superheroes, Teen Titans, Walt Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, and her own space opera series, A Distant Soil.

“A Distant Soil” is considered a classic of graphic novel art and has been profiled in books, magazines and documentaries. It is listed in The 101 Best Graphic Novels by Stephen Weiner, and is a perennial in American libraries. It’s themes and style predate the now common manga influence in American art, and it’s epic scope, a story of more than 1,000 pages, was almost unprecedented when first published. The series has also seen print in Spanish and Italian language editions, and to date has sold some 700,000 copies.


Juanjo Lopez

Graphic designer, letterer and typographer.

I’m interested in old vernacular type designs, and determined to learn every aspect of manual typography, calligraphy, lettering, or letterpress printing.

I’m part of Familia Plómez, pre-digital typographic collective and letterpress workshop based in Madrid, and Unostiposduros.com, the most important spanish typographic website.

I have teached typography in several places, like IED Madrid and MrMarcel School. I have also taughed type, lettering and letterpress.
