He made a jumble with cola pen in letter Faith and says, “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase”. He made Sick type with a white pencil and a little brush pen. By making Bright type, he grasped an empty brush pen. Thinned watercolor with water and started writing on black paper. He says, “It worked out quite well. A brush pen doesn’t absorb much paint though, but a paint-dip after each letter helped”. In Stay brilliant he tried to turn things all over the place with white script and black shading.
