About This Class

For left-handed lettering artist and muralist RYLSEE, the best drawings can often come from everyday life. Ideas that are found right under our noses — heard while walking to work, in your favorite song, or even something that's trending online.

This 50-minute class will teach you how to take those simple ideas, events, or essentially any phrase that strikes a chord with you personally, and transport it to paper in a lettered composition. Through listening and looking at things carefully, and applying some basic lettering and typography techniques, you’ll walk away with a fun quote drawing that expresses your personality.

Perfect for graphic designers, lettering artists, type enthusiasts, as well as creative people who just like to doodle, this class will teach you how to draw inspiration from daily events and turn it into art.
