Lettering Practice

Now that I know I’m doodling the whole book, I spent part of my lunch lettering. I remember the days when I’d research lettering styles and go over the anatomy of type. Takes me to my skillshare hand lettering reference guide.

This sheet is a free downloadable from dawnnicole.com. I just love these letters. I played around with different ideas. I caught myself critiquing the spacing and making connections between the word and the right elements to express it. I even noticed the that all the letters have the same width. Having the same width makes letters cohesive.

I miss lettering. Road Trip helped me remember that. All this exercise took was 15 minutes. I’ll give myself a few more days to hand letter and doodle.

I have all these stories and use color, texture and nature to bring them to life. My favorite supplies are watercolor, acrylic, and fun tools. I just want to create.
