See your own improvement quickly by practicing daily.
People are always asking me how I developed my lettering skills. The answer: It’s all about the dedicated time to practice. It’s not just about learning the latest greatest technique or what the best tools are. Progress comes from getting comfy with your brush and paper and doing the work.
Your letters will flow easily and gracefully by building up muscle memory.
This structured method for practicing helped me improve my brush lettering in less than a year. Here’s an overview of the method:
- Start BIG. Remember when you were in pre-school and you were first learning how to write? Remember that ginormous pencil they gave you and lined paper that only fit a few lines of words per page? We’re starting there. If you haven’t used a brush for lettering before, it’s a totally foreign object compared to using a regular pen. We’ve got to get those arm muscles ready and that brush control steady!
- What are we actually drawing first? Basic shapes. Lines, U’s, Circles. And I’ve created tracing sheets to help you.
- Next up is lowercase letters in a jumbo scale. It’ll feel funny at first. Like, how in the world will I eventually address envelopes this way? Trust the process. Big first. Then we go smaller.
- After you’re comfortable and loving how your letters look in jumbo size, we’ll go to our regular sized practice sheets. I have both basic shapes and lowercase letters for you here too. Practice makes better, so stick with it!
Never worry about “messing up” your practice pages.
This downloadable digital guide is divided into sections of PDF files so that you can easily identify which sections you’d like to print. Print as many copies as you need.
