photodigital alphabet declination AB Blue Bird E M J

This photodigital Image Capture of notes on alphabet declination for AB Blue Bird EMJ top of the sixth page.  Here we can see the changes to letters.  Writing them and writing them.  Getting tired of taking so long there would lose strokes or have strokes blended.  Writing fast can mean less to write or more compact shapes.  Sharp is a quick whip gesture.-Ernie Moore Jr.

First letter is a horse ear.  I decide the eye helps define the triangle as an ear.  That’s pretty solid to me so I go on to “B” icon or second letter.  Dolphin shape resembles ocean wave.  Wave becomes dolphin out of the water.  Now set the style of the water.  For this letter/icon this is what I think would change with use.  Curve loses the waves and straightens.  Even the dolphin can lose its curve for the more direct shorter stroke.  And we generations later do not see the shapes as more than marks with no meaning except assigned valued.-Ernie Moore Jr.

For me one style of making an alphabet is grouping similar icons for sections of alphabet.  I’m comfortably set on “B” and “C” from one dolphin leaping to a dolphin leaping over the leaping dolphin.  And working on my solid for the design of a dolphin diving to get “D.”-Ernie Moore Jr.

photodigital of alphabet declination AB Blue Bird bottom of page five E M J

This photodigital Image Capture is of the bottom of page five of alphabet declination notes AB Blue Bird.  I go to the horses ear.  I use the eye as a relative marker or reference marker.  Two distinct features in the first generation–exactly an ear and exactly the top curve of an eye.  As generations use this print format there might be a tendency to join the two distinct parts.  It can happen in different ways if it was standardized.  With alphabet declination-the final product should be a likely de-evolution from pictograph.  Here I’m running through branches of variations.  This is atypical.  I am in essence going for a end alphabet to present, Yet, I am looking to have my usual thing of the progression from pictograph to cursive fast script that would come after generations of use.-Ernie Moore Jr.

The ear looses half so one needn’t back track yet one smooth stroke to the eyelid.  I also explore horizontal layout verses a more realistic.  Loops are freer-faster than a point that has to be traced back down.-Ernie Moore Jr.

Next on the page is dolphin form.  I use a wavy line as a base line of relevance for water.  Expressing the concept of dolphin leaping out of the water I use a curve to represent the body and try a dorsal fin. later I ad a pectoral fin to add to its looking like a dolphin.  Then dolphin going under water.-Ernie Moore Jr.
