I did this monogram researches during my studies and it was a good way to comprehend the question of graphic sign, of creative process, and with its own name, I thought it would be enhancive. Moreover, after some weeks of stuck “leke” project, it was good to realize a short-term exercise in one afternoon. I was suspicious on the commercial aspect of this logo-like creation, but I reminded me the artists’ monogram like those of Dürer, and finally approached this work more as a signature’s research.
If the enthusiast was not so perceptible at the beginning, I fast noticed it was going well. After a projection of different examples –historical, classical, and some others, really interesting, famous or not–, they blacked over one or two pages of various researches. The parallel projection of types let them to see how to draw nice letters. Then, after some talk and selection, each youth launched himself in the drawing of one sign in big size – A4. Beyond the letters, each of the youth could find his own direction, different one from the other, which made me happy, it didn’t seem obvious. The big size let us to really work on the precision of the drawings, tracing over and over again the curves in order to get something else than potatos’ shape. And finally with patience and obstinacy, we got five signs, worthy of our first diploma’s realization. By hanging the pages on the wall, İI could really feel the satisfaction of the youth, and so mine. Once again, a nice adventure.

We did this work as a body with the youth of the association, which was both exciting and really tiring. We spent around 5 days on the wall, attended by highs and lows, but at the end, I am really happy of the result and above all, the “public” won over. Fishermen, inhabitants, bystanders, friends, tourists, the feedbacks were abundant and warmly. And still now, some people evoke to me, again and again, this “lovely” wall. A journalist even has interviewed me, and the paint sponsor, Marshall, wants us to realize other works together. Finally, beyond these great critics, it was wealthy to mix, for the first time, my abilities of illustration and my taste for graffiti on this “experimental” wall. So I will just finish by a THANK YOU to Seçil to let this adventure happen.
