Lettering has always intrigued me- calligraphy especially. I remember changing my handwriting weekly in grade school to try out different “fonts”- hearts on top of i’s, or E’s that looked like backwards 3’s… I was more worried about how the writing looked that what I was actually writing! Currently, I have a “fake calligraphy” that I do, really it’s just adding shading to flourished cursive letters. I decided it is time to learn how to do actual calligraphy- the real deal! I found some super helpful resources to get me started and I thought I would share.
Here is my inspiration:
1. The Class:
I have signed up for a course on Skillshare called “Introduction to the Art of Modern Calligraphy” by Molly Jacques, of Molly Jacques Illustration. Click here to check out the course- it’s free!
Now that I have blogged about it, I can’t give up, right? You guys will have to hold me accountable! Who’s going to try calligraphy with me?
