Thing to Love Hard: Lettering

brush lettering and caligraphy

My current hobby (obsession) is hand lettering.  

Calligraphy, Brush Calligraphy, Watercolor…I don’t care.  I love it all.

That makes it sound like I know what I’m doing.

I don’t.

I just follow a ton of Calligraphers and Hand Letter-ers on Instagram now.

Their talent mesmerizes me.

Especially Angeliqueink , Annerobin, WritePrettyThings, Bugaboobeardesigns (because HARRY POTTER), and PiecesCaligraphy


Basically, I find something I like on Pinterest or Instagram, and try to recreate it.

Or make my own…but I’m not really good enough for that yet.

So I steal ideas instead.


Don’t judge.


Right now, my favorite tools are

admin-ajax (2)The Pentel Brush Aquas Water Brush Pens   for watercolor.


admin-ajax (2)Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pens for easier Calligraphy and lettering.  
(I’m partial to the hard tip.  That’s what she said.)
admin-ajax (2)Tombow Duel Brush Pens for Brush Calligraphy.
(I really suck at brush calligraphy so it’s not my favorite right now but SO MANY COLORS!!!
I only have one set of 10 of these cause I’M NOT A MILLIONAIRE.
But I want more.
Buy me more.)
As for actual Calligraphy, I have one pen and one thing of ink.
Don’t really understand any of it yet.
Work in progress.
Any suggestions for online Calligraphy classes or other fun tools?   Favorite ink?  Paper?  Pens?
