So how should I really hold my brush when lettering?

Well, it’s totally up to you and your needs, I don’t believe in rules because there’s always too many exceptions, but I will give you some tips so that you don’t totally ruin your brush on the first day.

Tip #1: Don’t smash the brush straight down on paper. You know, like 4 year olds do. I know, I have one.

Tip #2: Don’t go against the grain. Or in this case, the bristles.
