Last we’ll use a product as the canvas for a hand lettered message and combine several different letter styles into one composition.  We’ll look at how to combine multiple letter styles so that they work well together and stand out on the canvas.

At the end of the class I’ll invite you to join me in a drawing challenge where you can share your hand lettered illustrations with me and everyone else in the challenge.

I think a lot of artists and designers get into lettering because they want to be able to tell stories with their work, and that is what I love about this process.  It allows you to have fun with drawing and illustration while also sharing an interesting message with your audience!

All you need to take this class is your iPad and a stylus or the digital drawing program of your choice.  You could also just use paper and pencil or paint on canvas!
