Hand Lettering

Over the last two years I’ve been working on more and ore projects that require that extra bit of work with typography, so I’ve been working on my hand lettering skills.

I briefly touched upon hand lettering during my university degree studies but through a lot of experimentation and practice my hand lettering skills have come on leaps and bounds. Everything you see below uses entirely fonts created by myself.

 

 

Be Kind To Yourself

Recently I’ve been focusing on trying to be a bit healthier. I’m a little overweight at the moment, (hey, I’m a working mum!) but my family has a history of bad health. Several years ago my dad passed away from a heart attack and my grandfather (on my dad’s side) died of liver cancer. I was super close with both of them and I would never want my now family to experience another member dying from any kind of major disease. So I’m pushing everyone to be a bit healthier, to eat less junk food, to move around more, and we’re already seeing big differences.

This influenced this series of posters for which I’ll be doing more. The idea is “be kind to yourself”, to look after your heart, kidneys, liver and lungs and while it’s a serious topic I also wanted to make it a little fun and cute so hopefully younger viewers will pick these up more.

A Is For You

A really fun project, I created a series of letters which can be adapted to suit different names and sold as posters. For example A for Amelia (my daughter’s name), L is for Layla. One of my very first illustration projects was drawing an alphabet and I really want to recreate this soon

Coffee Art

I love my coffee. I wake up and I need my coffee. Coffee helps me to think. I love my coffee! So with this in mind I created a custom hand lettered poster celebrating my love of coffee.

Five Brave Things Illustration

I undertook a course this year which required multiple assignments and projects but one of the most interesting was to create a “Five Brave Things” about myself illustration. These are five things that really stood out.

      Hi TzGem,

      The best way to do hand lettering is don’t think it’s a “writing” and treat it like “drawing”. For example, you “draw” your letter just like the way you would when you draw a picture.

      You can also check out Skillshare website. They got tons of hand lettering courses you can learn hand lettering! 😉
