Practicing flourishing and layout with my friends at Hand Lettered Design. The practice of lettering teaches you that your best friend is a good eraser!  Also, using awesome quotes inspires and spurs on the practice.

We Interrupt the New Adventure with this other new thing…


The ladies at Hand Lettered Design have come out with a new course – Intermediate Lettering – Flourishing & Layout! Two of the biggest questions, once you start lettering are:  Where do I add flourish and How do I Layout the Words?  This new course is designed to answer both of those questions. I loved the beginning courses I took with Lisa and Addi so I am really looking forward to this course as well.



It’s the little things


This is a page I colored (with Copic markers) from Lisa Funk’s Creative Lettering Journal  – a wonderful book filled with lettering drills, quotes and images. A fun way to augment your lettering practice.

Chalk Art – “be” wreath


Inspired by the samples in the Wreath Tutorial from Hand Lettered Design, I created this oval wreath. In the moment, I thought it was a great place to be.

Fude Brush Lettering Drills


Practicing with some Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pens and some drills courtesy of the ladies at Hand Lettered Design.  These pens are the perfect size of small scale lettering.
