Well, at least I tried. Any tips and comments would be greatly appreciated. 😔

Day 2 of learning copperplate featuring a borrowed holder, a new found semi favorite nib & a zillion lowercase letters which don't look like letters anymore. 😖😭 I'm not gonna lie, I'm slightly frustrated. Have you ever written a letter or word so many times that it starts to look wrong? Rawr. Drills are driving me insane. 😔

A little practice before I go back to reality. Love hate relationship with this nib but maaaaaan, those hairlines are wonderful! ❤️I think I might be holding my pen wrong because there are times when the ink just comes out in a giant blob. Boo. 😭

Sometimes, it's just not what they want. #handlettering #handdrawn #lettering #typography #graphicdesign #logodesign #graphics #logos #design #log #graphic #design #calligritype #sinktypebook #illustration #art #typeinspired #typographyinspired #thedailytype #typedaily

I really love the color of this new ink from L'Ecritoire, but it runs a little bit. I tried adding some gum Arabic, any other letterers have any ideas? Also, everybody get together try to love one another right now. #handlettering #calligraphy #bleunuit #lecritoire #theyoungbloods #2014yearoflettering
