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. 🖤

Oh god 🙈 Jumped right into this week's #Homwork assignment and decided to recreate my very first post from February 9, 2017. It's been a while since using Procreate so I thought I'd give it a try again 😅
I remember being so stoked when I received my Tombow pens in the mail to start my calligraphy/lettering journey. Script overall is still a weakness of mine and I can't wait to see how much I improve in 2018! Also, since starting this account I've learned that it's important to document all of your work so you can see your progress (which can be sooo f*kn rewarding btw! 🙆🏻) To all of you that ABSOLUTELY kill it with script lettering, I envy you haha. So 🍇-ful for this lettering community! Thank you for inspiring meeee <3
It seems like whenever I talk about Kendrick Lamar with folks, they’ve never heard of or given Section.80 or Overly Dedicated a listen. Some really awesome music there to be discovered.
