Do you want to get better at lettering?
Well then you need to practice, and practice daily.

October Lettering Challenge

 

This monthly challenge will inspire and motivate you to practice so that you can really be proud of you work, and heck, making that Instagram feed look beautiful isn't a bad thing either.

The challenge is open to everyone who wants to participate

 

If you enrolled in The Lettering Course you know by now that practice is key to getting better at lettering. And the best way to hold yourself accountable is with a challenge. 

So don't wait, start lettering today!

I loved seeing everyone's posts on Instagram in the last two months, but I quickly realized that even though some of you are students of mine and are part of the Facebook Group, I still don't know you that well. So this month I decided to change that, there will be a post on the Facebook Group every 7-8 days and in the comments you can post your daily lettering for the challenge.

 

Let's get spooky!

I love scary things, even though they scare me, especially ghostly movies. So of course I decided to focus this month's challenge on eerie things. Ok, not all are that eerie. But you get the point. Another thing I wanted to do differently is have you add a  bit of your own words to it. So I want you to letter the word for the day, and the first word that comes to your mind when you read that word. So let's say I'm doing day 5 and the word for that day is Tombstone, the first thing that pops into my head when I read that word is zombie. So I'd letter Zombie Tombstone or something like that. It's all up to you how you wish to combine the words or use more than one.

So grab your favorite tool and start lettering.

 

The challenge starts September 1st!
