Aspiring artist




Hello Danielle and fellow classmates!

I'm new to handlettering and calligraphy and I like trying out new styles and supplies.

During this class, I tried out all the brushes I had on hand and found that each had its own trick to get the best out of it. Once I found the right way to hold the brush, it suddenly became much easier. (I just have to actually remember which way for which brush, now.)

For my project, I choose a few different ways to say "Hello" and wrote them out in different brushes. I'll spare you the training sheets and show you the final results.

I tried a few different writing styles on the fly and wrote the words with only a grid as guide (no pre-writing), so the letters aren't very regular. And the lighting in the photos is terrible, sorry. I might redo the whole thing at some point.


Here's the grid I used, which I put under a sheet of layout paper.

Alright, so, it's far from perfect, but I had a lot of fun. Thank you, Danielle, for the class and thank you anyone else who read all of that!
