Lettering- Create Your Own Font

Alot of people don't seem to like their own penmanship. So to get over your handwriting, create your own font. Try using a short quotation, a poetry fragment or words that inspire you to play with lettering. I like to use a black ink pen. Try adding spirals, dots, doubled lines, filling in, flourishes, elongating forms etc. Think Crazy Calligraphy! Doodling with words! Word Art! Beware, this can become addictive... even meditative...

  1. This is really a cool idea. My handwriting changes as I write...never looks even unless I am working on it and using my very learned lettering style learned in design school.

    Thanks for the tip!
