About This Class


Ah, the joy of brush lettering - the whimsical nature of modern calligraphy at its finest. We all know that practice makes perfect, or progress, rather. That said, I believe that capital letters are often overlooked. We don't use them as often as we use lowercase letters, so it makes sense why they'd go by the wayside. 

This class changes that! You will find a variety of uppercase options to explore in this class. It's meant to direct you more toward styles, rather than specific letters to replicate. You will feel encouraged to explore more opportunities that can incorporate into your own lettering, creating seamless, unique-to-you lettering. 

For guides with even more options to practice, check out my practice sheets: 10 Ways to Letter Capitals!

The Pigeon Letters | Lettering & Illustration

Hey hey! I'm Peggy. I'm native to the Pacific Northwest and I love all things creative. From a young age I was dipping everything I could into the arts. I've dabbled in quite an abundance of varieties, such as ballet, fire dancing, crafting, graphic design, traditional calligraphy, hand lettering, painting with acrylics and watercolors, illustrating, creative writing, jazz, you name it. If it's something involving being artistic, I've probably cycled through it a time or two (or 700).
