About This Class

In this class, you will learn the next steps of brush-pen lettering. We’ll go over some short exercises to understand key principles of rhythm, hierarchy, contrast, balance and composition for creating a custom piece of  hand lettering print-art, using brush pens.

In succession to the first class "Brush Lettering Essentials: Starting Out", using basics as a starting  point, in this class I will take you through the process of creating new concepts, drawing and refining a  custom piece of hand-lettering, with the core focus on building and refining a good composition.

At the end of this class, you will learn how to develop a good composition, how to design a custom  lettered piece using brush pens, how to refine it and finally how to vectorize it.

This class will also work as the connecting dots for other intermediate and advanced class that will follow in coming days. Would love to see you all!
