Been getting into handdrawn typography/lettering a lot recently and its become a huge welcome 'step away form the computer' exercise.
Was wondering if you guys knew of any top blogs etc dedicated to the craft, I generally haunt a few of the major typography blogs, but im specifically looking for stuff related to the creation and process rather than pure inspiration.
Also, for anyone practicing the arts, do you have any 'must-have' stuff in terms of kit (paper types, pens and the like) Im using some Rotring Isograph pens atm, They seem pretty decent...
Heres a sample of me literally 'pissing about' and had such a blast making it, I just want to churn out more in a bid to refine my craft :)
Look forward to hearing your suggestions
Are you sure this is your first blast in making good typography? It is pretty awesome for an amateur. Great work!
Cheers dude, much appreciated, Have done quite a few since then, all practice I guess. Close to the stage where Im happy and can import to illustrator and take it to the next level
Looks great. I agree with Douglas, doesn't look like amateur work. *claps*
That's pretty impressive for an amateur. Great work! If you're looking for some typography artists you stalk, I think Dana Tamachi is a perfect choice. She's pretty good. Check out her site: http://www.danatanamachi.com/ to see her works. :)
Wow, her stuff is amazing..I think I'm in love....
Been making pretty good progress with this over the last few weeks, at the point where I feel I can make some decent stuff worthy of adding to the ol portfolio of random stuff.
Hope to share some new stuff on here soon!
