About This Class

Join Mary Kate McDevitt as she brings lettering to life with illustration. This 35-minute class explores using concepts to drive the style of your lettering and finding inspiration in reference materials. Focused on sketching, you’ll explore 3 different approaches:

  • illustrations alongside typography
  • letters taking the form of objects
  • subtle motifs throughout letterforms

By the end, you’ll create your own hand-lettered illustration inspired by your favorite animal. This class and project is perfect for beginners seeking a fun project as well as intermediate and advanced students looking to deep-dive into a sketching challenge.

More than 25,000 students have learned to hand letter with Mary Kate's first 3 Skillshare classes: The First Steps of Hand Lettering, The Final Steps of Hand-Lettering and Vintage Hand-Lettering: Styling Phrases for Timeless Appeal.
