Here’s an update on my multilayer holographic composite project, with 26 new handwriting samples. As always, if you’d like to contribute, here are the directions.
I got some fresh handwriting samples for the Multilayered Holographic Composite from my summer school class, we’re up to 70 samples: Remember, if you’d like to contribute your own handwriting sample, go here for submission guidelines!
Another iteration of the Multilayered Holographic Composite, with help from my Graphic Design intro class at NHIA: It’s starting to coalesce around the basic letterforms, although “Multilayered” is fuzzier than the other words because there’s a much larger spread of word lengths between different handwriting styles. If you’d like to be included, please, feel free!
An update on the Multilayered Holographic Composite, I’m up to 48 samples to average together. There’s a pig on one of them, and some starbursts on another, but it’s all grist for the mill:
I took the samples, removed the grey boxes, scaled everything so that the word “Holographic” was the same size in each sample, and aligned each word to the position it appeared in the very first sample, which was written by Yours Truly. This is more like it:
Thanks to my students in my Intro to Graphic Design class, I now have 32 samples of handwriting to compare: It’s interesting, but not quite what I wanted. I used the boxes to try to keep things aligned and corralled, but I’m starting to think I’ll need to normalize the sizes of the samples so
Another composite project, and this one with an interactive component! I decided to do a composite of handwriting samples, and got my summer school class and the regular attendees at the Bow & Arrow’s Open Press Night to supply the first round. I prepared a standard sampling sheet and had everyone write “Multilayered Holographic Composite”
