About This Class

e6a68994

This class will explore the fun and unique ways you can add depth and dimension to your hand lettering and achieve that 3 dimensional look to your letters using pencil and paper.  I will walk you through step by step from forming the framework or "skeleton" of your letters, creating an alphabet, adding some body and style and finally giving them depth and dimension.  We will work through multiple different styles and create complete alphabets for each style to use in your designs.  I have included downloads of the lettering alphabets we work on to use as guides in the lessons.  I have also included a lettering layout for the final project for you to work into an art poster with style and dimension.

Illustrator and Designer - The most beautiful designs start with the simplest ideas.

Throughout my years of designing and illustration, I have experienced the greatest joy from sharing my passion for art and encouraging others to explore creativity through simple drawing and design, both by hand and digitally.

I believe the first step to accomplishing your goals and dreams is to just start.  Jump in and learn as you go.  Allow yourself to make mistakes for those are the best lessons.  Don't judge your work, just do and then do it again and do it some more.  Watch it evolve and look back with awe in how far you have come because you chose to just start!  

My goal in my classes is to break the process down into simple techniques that everyone can try and then encourage and inspire students to keep experimenting and building on the ideas they have learned in my classes.  Practice and Patience are important with art, but even more important is to Enjoy the Process!  That is what it is all about.  Do what you love and love what you do.

Remember the most beautiful and detailed designs start with the simplest ideas.
