Today’s lettering practice: Think happy thoughts!
We’ve just started spring break and we decided to stay put. Today I pulled out my lettering notebook (it’s been a while) and I lettered while the kids played outside. I’m trying to slow down my writing. I tend to make quick strokes and then am unhappy with the spacing or the angle or the…whatever it might be.
I’m working on being more intentional with every stroke. I’m realizing calligraphy/handwriting is one of those skills that continue to evolves. I could write this phrase every day for a month and it would continue to morph into something better. That’s actually a great challenge – writing the same thing over and over again over a period of time. I just may have to try that.
Love your lettering, Kara! Very inspired. Happen to own this brand of brush pens, but have not used them for calligraphy. Your color palette is perfection, and your script is so vibrant, expressive, yet elegant.
Thank you! It’s definitely something that requires a lot of practice – the pens are amazing – I’ve used several brands and Tombow is by far my favorite.
