Okay the FAQ 'n Q&A or whatever is ON!
Thank you for all of your questions, guys, I love them! I'm going to answer some of them here and might have to continue down into a comment. If you don't find an answer to your question there, ask me in the comments 👇 and I'll reply. Okay? Great, here we go!
Starting up:
I started lettering in january of 2016 after getting brushpens for christmas from my husband. I didn't know what they was, neither had I heard of lettering, but google and youtube told me everything I needed to know at that point and suddently I had a hobby! I'd never done anything creative as an adult, but it was cool to realize that I just changed that.
I practice every day. And I really mean Every. Day. Steadiness, straight lines, even letters, what have you, it all derives from practice. I am not talented, I was not artistic, I haven't drawn since I was a kid, I have a terrible handwriting that I can't even read myself (pic5). It's all practice.
I never sketch my letters with a pencil nor do I use guidelines, which is stupid and costs me a lot of paper and ink. Use a pencil, you hear me! I almost never get it right the first time, it usually takes loads of takes. I want you to know this, so I'll repeat it: It takes many tries to get it all somewhat okay in one shot. I try to remember to post the reject pile for you to see. Don't get discouraged from what you see on IG - there's usually a lot of work behind it! I guess I spend anything from 5 - 45 minutes on a post. You can see my high tech tripod in pic 4. Yep, a cocktailglass on a box. I record the videos with my phone and speed it up with an app, Fast Motion Video, and that's it.
I get inspo from everywhere: signs, ads, book covers, Pinterest and of course IG, letters are everywhere and there are SO many ways to draw them. My styles appear before me on the paper when I draw. I know it sounds weird, but there is no other way to explain it. I guess they're a result of processing what I've seen.
How to learn:
I first learned through youtube tutorials (don't remember which ones, sorry) and Skillshare. Skillshare is an AWESOME (continue in comment 👇)

Inner sleeves, if present, are pictured. Records on your player may produce different results.

Not a glamour shot...this is down and dirty, sinful deliciousness captured. Her name is “The Blue Jay” gloriously crafted by Deer Creek Cheese in Wisconsin. From their website: “Juniper Berry Infused Quintuple Crème Blue. International Cheese Awards 2017 Silver Winner for Best Label Design. Made using a Quintuple Crème Blue recipe, The Blue Jay is rich in texture with strong buttery notes. We then crush juniper berries to release their perfume and infuse them throughout to complement the Blue strain’s unique botanical essence. The result is a bold, yet utterly creamy Blue with a delicately piney bouquet that blooms in your mouth. While The Blue Jay is wonderful with any of our suggested pairings, try it melted on a New York Strip for a truly decadent meal.”
My 2-cents: fab on a water cracker! @deercreekcheese #getyousomenow #bonappetit #bluecheese #fromage #artisnal 👌🏻🙋🏼‍♀️🎻🎼
