Recently I have really enjoyed doing some hand typography projects. It's a lot of fun and a less expensive then buying fonts. A little while back I discovered William Paterson
who makes hand type himself. His work is very beautiful and inspirational. Checkout
his YouTube videos. These are a couple of projects I did.
For some reason I couldn't spell Lord. I cough it up to working on this at 4:00 AM. So I removed the L and Added the D later in Illustrator. First I sketched out my piece with a Staedtler Mars® Lumograph® 2H pencil. Then I outlined it and filled in the type with a Pigma® Micron® 005 pen and a Staedtler® Lumocolor Permanent Broad Tip marker. After that I scanned and uploaded it to Illustrator where I cleaned it up, added the foliage, and put a splatter/grunge effect on it. I followed the same process with the Passion piece.
