Happy Easter easy lettering ‘how to’

Lately I have become obsessed with lettering. I have always found great inspiration in beautiful hand lettering, but never really practiced it much. Apparently interest changes over time, but I guess so does oneself 🙂

I like to create posters with graphics, patterns and lettering, but projects like that takes time and planning. Often I just feel the need to write down a word or a quote in a beautiful way, to give it some dimension. Small projects like that give you fast results, but it is also a great way to practice and keep exploring your skill.

One of my favorite ways to create these little lettering projects, are by keeping a small notebook, where I do all my sketches. I like to find cool reference material, print a few sheets, and let that be my guide and inspiration for the sketch. This is also a really great way of getting better at ‘knowing’ type/letters.
