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 inΒ 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. πŸ™‚

  1. This is so cool! It’s great that you try so many different techniques.

  2. Your watercolor wash is really nice! Fun typography, too.

  3. 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 πŸ™‚ well done.
