Freehand vs. Computer Lettering

I’ve been playing around with this project – practicing the lettering in my sketchbook, playing with fonts on the computer. I even scanned my watercolor background and printed it with type I set up on the computer. I don’t usually do this. I create on the computer enough as a Graphic Designer and when I signed up for that first drawing class 7? 8? years ago, the point was to use anything but the computer. I like the lettering in my sketchbook the best. It’s ironic because that was my first try at it. Maybe I’ll scan it in and print that on the watercolor background. 🙂

  1. I love the watercolour. Keep up the good work! I need to keep trying stuff like this, I’m stuck in a rut at the moment! I try to use lyrics or motivational quotes in my work to kick start myself. Not sure if that would help at all! Love this piece though 🙂 well done.
