Doodles and drawings

Last year I decided to try my hand at lettering. I bought some colored pencils and markers.

 I try to keep things simple. Here I fiddled with zigzags, but used my regular penmanship.

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.

I like them all....especially like the capital. My writing is horrible any more...
