Hard to believe 2017 is coming to an end. Looks like my most popular post this year was from @36daysoftype , when I was first starting to practice painting on glass. Each post challenged me to develope better brush control, and helped prepare me to work on more involved paintings. It turns out, 36 days of Type started right after learning techniques from @mikemeyersignpainter workshop! The practice following a workshop is what really sets the ideas and techniques into stone.
- SUNDAY SESSION -
Winter in Berlin is the perfect season of the year to sit, chat and draw with my dear partner @rommygon ❤.
Thanks @moleskine_world for actively supporting my drawing addiction.
Have a wonderful Sunday everyone!
Snowflake flourish (sqr version) ☃️❄️
With these flourishes that rely on symmetry, one tip I have is to draw in strokes one round at a time. First on all sides that repeat the same pattern, then move on to the next unique stroke. After the bigger foundational flourishes are done, you can start drawing in filler leaves of all sorts to fill in the space. Happy flourishing!

And on to another little project of mine; #letteringsheffield 👍! Handlettering is a big passion for me, & one I like to incorporate into my professional work where I can. So each day this week, I’ll take a #favouriteplace of mine in #Sheffield & give it the #typography treatment it deserves! (Thanks @nowthenmag for the idea!). If you guys like it, might develop them into postcards/posters/stickers. Let me know 👍.
This is #crookes - one of the first places I lived here in Sheff with my other half @stephxx15 ❤️.
