Mindful strokes! You guys seemed to get a lot out of my last vid where I showed the breakdown of strokes / how often I stop and start with strokes by changing colours - so here's another 😊
This may be a technique that could help you become more mindful with your lettering - but it's not necessary to change colours! Just go slow and remember to break down your strokes.
If you need help figuring out where to break down strokes, you can find miniscule alphabet worksheets for immediate download in my shop (www.blackchalkco.shop) as well as a short course on Skillshare 😊 there's a link in my bio that'll take you there.
I feel a bit rusty today! Had a few wonky upstrokes - believe me when I say that neeeever leaves you 😂 so don't be discouraged if it happens to you! Practise helps, and I need to be doing more of that!

Working on a new logo for myself! This was actually about 20 minutes of work. And that was after a dozen or so different drafts to get the lettering closer to the way I wanted it. All done on the iPad Pro 12.9" in @procreate using the #applepencil .
My business name is sort of a metaphor for the way I want to live my life: raw and authentic and making things sweeter around me. The 'Writes' part represents not only lettering and calligraphy but my love for writing words. Hence, the blog, my current creative writing outlet.
Free Pen with Journal Purchase ends tonight! Check back a couple posts for all the details. 🖤
