NUS FASS Matriculation T-Shirt (1991)
This is one of the earliest commissions I ever did — the 1991 intake matriculation T-shirt for the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, National University of Singapore. I was responsible for the dark, heavy writing (not the inset square), and the pen used was a black Zig Kuretake calligraphy marker.
It was one of my early attempts at gothicized Italic. I did this a mere four years or so after picking up calligraphy by myself, and even at this distance in time, I think the writing is pretty good — in fact I’m not sure I could write as well today!
