Practice Makes Better Hand-drawn Lettering Illustration
A refrain I’m always telling myself, the more you practice the better you get (even if you’ll never be perfect, because no one is!). This hand-drawn lettering piece started as a pencil sketch, was refined in ink on paper, then was scanned in and vectorized. In Adobe Illustrator, I refined the shapes and letters and added color. Now I have a print I can hang up to remind myself: there’s always room for improvement, so keep on practicing!

Inked letters and inked detailing to go inside letters--to be refined and combined on the computer.
