Halloween Handlettering

So there I was waiting for the light to change and then I noticed a guy who had painted Happy Halloween on a window storefront. He also painted some Halloween inspired bats…and I forgot what else but I thought hey, what a cool job and an amazing example of the demand for hand lettering! I wish I could do that. What kind of paints did he use? What a cool example of how you can put your work out there. I have been practicing my art and I am coming along. I also recently found out that one of the bloggers I follow has her items in American Eagle Outfitters stores. What another awesome example that my dreams can come true. I mean I have always loved making birthday cards with big block letters and drawing patterns and who knew I could make a career of it. One can draw for animation, street signs, store signs, magazines, logo design, children’s books and so much more.   If you have any Hand lettering advice please comment below.

Wish I could have taken a picture of the Halloween store but here is a picture of the items.  They are by Wit and Whistle.


In a few days, I will be posting some more Pumpkins pictures and cool kids costumes.
