Hand lettering for a birth announcement. I created the letters 4 times so they can be layered on top of each other (dotted shade, solid pink, white stripes and brown outline). Because each layers is drawn by hand individually no two letters are exactly the same.

Project M #17 "Classic" - I was doodling a Roman column type thing and with a misstroke, the basis of this M suddenly showed up. Lucky mistake!

For a hand lettering course I did this year with master letterer I practiced a new lettering style (new for me that is) with more curls and flourishes. It's a little different from the more vintage-inspired lettering I tend to gravitate to so a good stretch exercise. But hard to master so this speaks to my frustration as much as to my progress!

That was fun! Last week I did a talk at my son's school about letters, explaining why there are so many ways to render a letter. And of course the kids had to get active themselves, drawing the first letter of their name in pixels. Great participation from all, and their teacher had an exercise on drawing letters in one of their text books so they continued drawing after I left ✏️ ‍

I've been diving into late 70s music recently after binging on The Getdown on Netflix, tried to give this a suitable seventies color palette. This is live-traced with minimal digital fixes, I focused mostly on the colors and textures on the computer

Project M#23 - Diamond - I had seen many examples of a gold bar / diamond facet style of 3D lettering and wanted to give that a try myself.
