THE LETTERISTA T SHIRTS ARE HERE!
WHAT IS LETTERISTA STYLE?
What does it mean to write in Letterista style? well-it’s a sweet mash up of traditional calligraphy gone wild, modern takes and innovations on old styles of lettering, and writing on fabric!
I’ve coined the term Letterista style to describe my take on calligraphy-
rebellious, different and definitely not by the rules. ( Although I bow to the gods Marsha and Larry B.!)
ANYONE CAN BE A LETTERISTA!
and embrace our style by wearing the shirt. If you are a rebel, an outsider, if you’re not one that likes to follow the rules, congratulations! ... you are a Letterista
Revolutionary, Defiant, Current
( I have to admit I was a bit inspired by the Sandinista party from Nicaragua, a socialist party that overthrew the military junta of their country in 1979)
And, Yes Guys can be Letteristas too!
AND NOW YOU CAN REPRESENT WITH THE NEW LETTERISTA T-SHIRT!
This LIMITED EDITION shirt was lovingly hand screened by my friend Neal ( available for T-shirt printing at firstname.lastname@example.org)I designed the Letterista logo influenced by one of my graff heroes Chaz Bojorquez. The shirts are printed on on heavy duty Haitian cotton black shirts
This edition of shirts is pretty small- so order quickly-I hope to make a new Letterista logo with each printing-so dare I say these could be collectors items!
HEY GALS! These tees are perfect for tricking out with a bit of braiding, slashing and trimming. Here’s a sample above of what you can do-Look for the You tube video from me on this technique soon! Its really pretty simple to do!
INTRODUCTORY PRICE is only $14 ( plus $4.95 for priority mail ) LA Locals can pick up shirts at various events and classes I will be attending! ( Annual General Meeting, Orange County Society for Calligraphy’s Potluck June 4, etc.) so no shipping fee-only the $14! What a deal! Be the first on your block!
Please email me with your order ( email@example.com)- or order on my website www.lisaengelbrecht.com
AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT OF THE LETTERISTA MOVEMENT!
BY THE WAY!
My book is now available for download to your iPad or iPhone ( Go to the app store) OR download the Kindle edition at Amazon .com ( I haven’t seen these-let me know what you think!) It’s a Brave New World!
