You cant handle the truth (hand lettering)

This was a very fun piece and video to shoot.  The way the gold reacts once it hits the paper is beautiful. Also I loved how the drop shadows turned out. So make sure to subscribe to my youtube channel.

Process Video of working on a calligraphy piece

Above his a reverse process video I shot while working on the piece below. I plan to do more of these while working on calligraphy work and etc. Just have to purchase a tripod first to have the video a bit cleaner and what not.

 

 

I am really happy how this piece turned out. The quote is lyrics from theweeknd and the reason I chose to do it was to continue expanding with other words instead of the same thing over and over (positivity quotes). Because I want to let everyone enjoy my calligraphy work.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Calligraphy Vs Hand-Lettering

I recently finished a complete sketchbook and I decided that. Since before I was somewhat playing around with calligraphy and not really taking it seriously at all. My thoughts were yeah this is pretty cool and that is about as far as I got with pursuing calligraphy.

Then I learned about hand lettering and really became amazed by the whole thought of drawing letters by hand and etc. Really knowing that when you sit and watch something take form how amazing it can be. One of the reasons I became so interested in hand-lettering is my fascination with typography. Typography ranging from graffiti to sign painters.

Calligraphy is definitely something that I’m going to continue doing. Because you may think calligraphy? that its so hard too do. When honestly all it requires is for you to relax, have patience and practice practice practice. The kit that I am using currently is Calligraphy The Easy Way (Complete Kit) I would recommend this for beginners. Inside you have gouache paint, fountain pen, inks, dip pen, brush for lettering. Also you have a book on the history of calligraphy that is a quick read also with the chancery calligraphy font and a sketchpad to practice with.

If your interested I recommend picking this up if you want something simple and not super expensive that will give you a good foundation of calligraphy. I also continually update my instagram with calligraphy projects that I have completed. Now If I can just get a better grasp on flourishes to not feel as if I ruined a project. Below is a video showing me working on a quote.

Have a great weekend everyone.
