How to Flourish Upper Case Letters

 

Are you confused about flourishing letters?

Or maybe you do you the same ones over and over and you’re looking for a fresh approach?  Look no further!

In my newest Skillshare class, I share my 15 point process for flourishing that will help you create unique beautifully flourished letters.

This is the process I developed over the past 8 years as a font designer to create my best selling fonts like Cantoni and Belluccia.

This is an intermediate level class for those who have some lettering experience.

But beginners can learn a lot from it too!

New Easy Lettering Tutorials with a Pencil!

Want to learn lettering but feel intimidated? Not sure which brush pens and paper to get?

I’m taking fear out of the equation by showing you how to start lettering with just a pencil and paper.

I’ll even send you the lettering exemplars I use in my beginner classes so you can follow along with me or practice on your own.

Or you can just use lined notebook paper to start.

Below is a tutorial showing you how to draw the letter “b”. I show you how to create it in many different ways.

Then I demonstrate step by step how to flourish the word bubble with lots of “b’s”.

If you try it and find yourself liking it, pick up some tracing paper at any craft store and email me to request the lettering exemplars.

My favorite pencils are Dixon Ticonderoga because they have the best eraser. And I’m not afraid to use it:)

You can find them at most stores where pencils are sold. I get them by the pack at Target.

Then keep that pencil sharpened as I take you through the alphabet letter be letter!

I hope you’ll join me!

You can find more of my tutorials on my YouTube Channel.
