One of my favorite parts of elementary school was learning cursive. I’m actually sad to hear that a lot of schools are no longer teaching kids cursive… But, that is beside the point.
I love the way script looks and have always loved the way letters can curve into one another, fly off the sheet, or stand tall and impressive. I’ve been doodling and playing around in notebooks for as long as I can remember. I enjoy the practice of it. I love different types of pens. I love drawing cute little illustrations or sketching my friends and family. When life gets tough and I want to withdraw from everything a few hours with my sketch pad typically makes me feel better.
Lately I’ve been trying my hand at ACTUAL calligraphy. It is certainly challenging me. I’m getting closer to having a product that I really like. I plan on getting some prints created and in my Etsy shop (some digital files are currently for sale), but it will take some time.
Besides enjoying the art of hand-lettering and illustrations… I have also been really enjoying some fabulous websites and Instagram feeds that feature some beautiful hand lettering. If you enjoy the beauty of script then I’d highly suggest you run right over and visit these fabulous sites.
