My worksheet:

I tried three different brush pens. Left is a B Faber-Castell Pitt artist pen. It was hard for me to get a reliable thin stroke. The middle set is a prismacolor brush tip marker; a little better at thick-and-thin, and what I ultimately ended up using for the final piece. The third, which I loved, is a Zig Wink of Stella brush pen; it was much more malleable than the other brushtips and it was easy to do fine upstrokes. You can't see it, but there are tiny sparks of glitter in the black ink. I've bought some Tombow pens to try out later since I think the brush tip will be more to my preference.

This is my first attempt at bounce lettering and one of my first attempts at brush lettering. I'm not displeased, but it's a little choppy and if I did this piece again, I would lay "is done with" out differently and work out another solution for the c-e connection on "silence." I love how "words" came out.
