I've always felt a strong connection to hand drawn art, the human touch! As a graphic designer, I spend a lot of my time finding the right font for a particular project. But recently I discovered that hand drawn type isn't just something to hunt around for on dafont, font squirrel or lost type. It's something that can come from my very own hands!
Drawing was and still is one of my favorite past times, so I want to start a journey to becoming great at brush lettering. If I can make my own hand drawn headline treatments, and integrate them into my graphic design, I know there will be so much more authenticity to my work.
I found this great online course from atly.com: https://atly.com/products/brush-lettering-essentials
I'll keep you all posted of my progress.
I have some other exciting news coming as well! By 2017, my life is going to be very different! Including this blog... I want to get better at blogging, and make reading my posts a fun experience! I hope to inspire other designers as well by sharing my story. It's so easy to keep things personal, but this medium is a blessing and I'm happy to be more open with my story if it could even help one other person out there!
Until next time...
