Pencil lettering drills
This pencil lettering piece is part of a personal project in which I practice my drawing and hand lettering skills. Lately I’ve been focusing on hatching to add depth and texture to my drawings. There’s something oddly calming about such a repetitive task. While the letters appear heavy and clean edged, the pencil texture gives the type a rough and loose character.
About being okay
When dealing with difficult situations, it can be hard to stay focused. Professional challenges or personal struggles sometimes limit the way we look at the world. In situations like that it can help to take a break and concentrate on something that brings joy and gives us time to breathe and think. A shift of perspective and things will be okay again! This little lettering practice came together in such a moment.
