This title features the demonstration of eleven popular fonts and their alphabets (print, script, scratch script, double-stroke, bold script, bubble, box print, bold box print, old English, graffiti, and stencilled lettering), and the painting of twenty-two names in various forms, colours and designs.
Gary Worthington, one of the best T-shirt artists and head instructor at the Airbrush Getaway workshop program, teaches for beginning to advanced airbrushers technical proficiency, the importance of lettering and how to determine and develop designs that sell.
