So, granted, this thing doesn’t look like much now. But I’m working on a few projects that I want a super handmade feel to…so I’m doing some lettering sets that are really unrefined. I think this is going to look cool once its done.
For my lesson today I started practicing a short phrase. I chose “Thankful & Grateful” I just worked on getting the letterforms down – the next phase would be artfully working up a composition for my words.
I started stringing some words together. I didn’t use gridded paper, so my words start slanting off the page. I’m still using the basic nib from the starter pack that my class recommended. My hand started cramping up a little today – but I actually find this really relaxing to work on in the evenings.
