Last year I decided to try my hand at lettering. I bought some colored pencils and markers.
Sometimes I recreate what I see on the internet or Pinterest or Instagram. It seems easier to copy what's in front of me as best I can. Following along that way has helped me learn.
Here is an example of a style I'm actually good at. They're really just storybook caps. It would make for difficult reading to have a block of text in this style.
Usually I like a message and fiddle around.
This one below is completely original, so I'm fond of it. I did it this evening, but I tried it in pencil last week. I'd been thinking about this one for a long time.
