It’s been many years since I last attempted doing hand-lettering. There really seems to be a renaissance in the art in the last few years. In addition to all of the pros, there are now a lot of kids and hobbyists doing it too. I think that this is a good thing in that more people will appreciate the beautiful work that the professionals do.
My father was a commercial artist that specialized in hand lettering, and when I was growing up, I always had a hard time explaining to people what it was that he did. People just assumed that all lettering was just made by machines!
Anyway, I decided to challenge myself to design a logo for myself. Here’s a rough pencil sketch that I hope I will be able to polish into something nice.
