Hand Lettering – First Try

In an insomniatic haze last night, I decided to ditch the blog hopping and decided to look up some lettering tutorials. I took an awesome modern calligraphy class last year, but sadly failed to practice with diligence. So at 1am, I stumbled on an awesome tutorial by MadebyMarzipan.

Step by step, made by MadebyMarzipan broke down the process and it was so much fun!

I started with the quote and then played with different shapes. After, I watched this video about lettering accents and started sketching the image, focusing on spacing and kerning.

It was so cool to see this sketch turn into the outline on the grey card…

… And even cooler to see it outlined with a white Sakura! Finally, a good compliment to the outside of the card!
