Creative Lettering

One thing I will admit is that I am not very good at hand-lettering. I do want to improve though, because I love the casual lettering that is so popular right now. I would also like my journal pages to look better. And, I must also admit, it bugs me when there is something I can't do, and that makes me want to practise it!
So I purchased this book by Jenny Doh, and I am very glad I did. The designs in the book are inspiring to look at, and the artists give tips on how they work.
This is a page from my sketchbook where I did one of the projects in the book, from the Flora Chang chapter. I love her work, so I was happy to see she was included in the book. As you can see, I still have a long way to go before I am proficient, but I am having a good time playing with it.


  1. This is really lovely. I googled the book and found your blog as I thought this was an image from the page - the nicest one I found. I'm surprised to find it isn't from the book but inspired by it. And it's very far from true to say you are not much good at lettering! This looks ideal to me.
