Hand Lettering: Lessons from my first pen strokes

This Instagram video gave me the courage to make my first pen strokes and officially enter the hand lettering world.

I decided to create a “logo” for my learning project. My goal is to recreate this logo once a month to show the improvement of my hand lettering skills:

After some marker strokes, I chose the best ones, copied to a new paper, and added some colours:

This is the final result of my first attempt at hand lettering:

Lessons learned:

  • Blending does not work on regular paper;
  • I need to practice basic lettering strokes;
  • I don’t need to put too much pressure on the paper when writing.

It was a great start!
