HAND LETTERING IS FOR EVERYONE
Whether you’re an experienced artist or someone who just likes to doodle, hand lettering is all about your specific style. When I first started lettering, my style was completely different than it is now. It took time to develop and evolve my style, so don’t be intimidated. You can do this! I am going to make sure you are comfortable and you walk away feeling confident in your own unique lettering style and prepared with all the tools and resources you need to continue practicing.
To give you an example of how someone’s personal style changes and improves over time, I’ve included three photos showing you how my hand lettering started off, how it looked about a year into my lettering journey, and how my current style looks today.
