Lettering Love.

Because I'm a dummy who can never seem to do one thing at a time (to C's constant exasperation!), after signing up for PaperFashion's Fashion Illustration Class a couple of weeks ago, I then searched through Skillshare's upcoming classes, found Neil Tasker's Lettering Class, and signed up, even though the dates overlapped.  Dumb.  But also: fun!  I've spent my lunchtimes for the past 2 weeks either sketching pretty dresses or pretty letters (with middling success at both), so I think it was worth it, even though I'm super behind on making the above lettering sketch digital through Adobe Illustrator (it's hard!  for me!).

I have also learned a ton about lettering and design, and what once was a mild interest is now an insatiable appetite for good design, calligraphy, hand-lettering and font types.  So of course, I'd like to share some of that with you:

  3. wow thank you so much, Milynn! that means a lot.

  4. thanks, ash! can you tell there has been an extra-large dearth of creativity in my day job recently?! ;) so illustrator. holy cow, i have no idea what i'm doing. i try to follow the instructions from the class video and there are just weird lines and points happening all over the place. i need someone to like sit down next to me and point out exactly what to do and what the little things mean. i feel like my mom when i try to teach HER technology things, which is a sad state of affairs...
