Let's write words: It´s nice to be nice

This is the last thing that I've done. I have to say that maybe using the grid is cheating, but it is really helpful and I've learned to keep my letters at the same angle.

More practice... and some arrangements that I don't like...

Here you can see the name of the video where you can find this alphabet and a link to the grid.

Hi Andrea.

I have a problem, a certain kind of lack of confidence in my compositions and my letters. That is why I practice strokes and practice strokes and practice strokes again, hoping that one of these days I will be able to write beautiful quotes or just words, as a miracle...but still nothing.

As Pablo Picasso used to say: Inspiration exists, but it better finds you working when it comes to you... So it is quite probable that it will find me practicing drills.

At the moment what I do is just go to pinterest or youtube and try to copy the different styles, quotes or compositions that I see. But it is kind of sad...LOL

Another thing that I've done is buying lots of different brush pens (in a period of a year) , hoping that they could write just by themselves, but apparently I'm the one who have to hold them and dirve them. I didn't see it coming...

So far I've tried Faber Castell PITT artist, Zebra (hard and medium), ZIG (art and graphic twin), Tombow (dual brush pen), Pilot (2 different ones), other two tombows (hard and soft). Pilot (pocket brush and color brush), and kuretake (nº8).

I'm following the workshop. Please any advice is very welcome. 

I'm also waiting for your lettering book that I ordered from Etsy. Very excited about it.

Thank you from Jerez de la Frontera and I wish a very nice day and writing for everybody. 

Qué suerte haber encontrado tus videos Andrea. Son fantásticos y estoy aprendiendo una barbaridad con ellos. 

Good 2016 for you all !!!!
