Last weekend I went to a Copic workshop where I learned about and tried hand lettering. As a graphic artist who has worked for an old school typographer, managed a composition department and now a desktop department I have always been fascinated by type. I remember being in elementary school and I loved to doodle. My doodles were with different fonts. Creating pieces of art with the letters of my name. Who knew what I was doing back then would be a huge “thing” now!
Here is the first piece I hand lettered
Here is another piece that I’m still working on, a Illuminated Letter. Of course since I love Halloween, it would need to be Halloween themed..
I really enjoyed myself and will be doing more hand lettering of my own…I’ll post the finished Illuminated letter shortly.
