Hand lettering or Handbash as my grandfather calls it has become a bit of an obsession of mine. I buy and make pens to learn and practice new lettering techniques. I seem to loose track of time when I decide to do some hand lettering but a good indication of when you need to stop is when there is no ink left. This is really just a hobby until I find my lettering voice.

 The Handlettering and calligraphy community is growing wide and fast and its just a case of being inspired by words and phrases and trying to find your style. I just used my handwriting as a starting point to self teach myself how to under the possibilities of using different pens. I still have a long way to go in terms of technique but its a skill I will nurture and practice to build confidence and broader knowledge of hand lettering, and how its history can inform todays community of letterers.

 I tend to set myself small hand lettering projects to connect lettering, words and imagery. I am always looking into ways I can bring my lettering to life either by vectorising it or actually placing lettering into the environment.
