Hand Lettering 2015

I took up hand lettering and calligraphy this year in earnest. I find lettering is more like illustration than writing, which suits me as my handwriting has always been pretty terrible. I already had most of the tools I need to make a start and I’ve accumulated a few fun new toys as I’ve gone along.

The Pilot Parallel Pen

The Pilot Parallel Pen is a lettering tool similar to an automatic pen in its utility, but with the portability and control of a cartridge based fountain pen. I have a couple and have started integrating them into my lettering and sketching exercises, with some energetic and mercurial results!
