Design, Lettering

 

A few weeks ago my friend Kat and I participated in a Linocut Printmaking Class, hosted here in town by Lee Valley. Neither of us were entirely sure what to expect from the class but we were both pleasantly surprised!

In progress work. I was the last one to finish my carving…carving around the letters was much harder than I thought it would be!

And finished work! It was really fun to learn the process of making the linocut and then getting it onto the page. Am planning to get the materials on my own and try some more projects over the summer!

Hand Lettering

Design, Lettering

On Sunday Dustin and I were getting our creative on and spent the afternoon working on some hand lettering. I think I would really like to take a calligraphy class but in the meantime I was letting myself get inspired by all of the great lettering online…especially on Pinterest. This is a direct copy, and I inverted the colours, but here is my first go:
