My loose sketch.
This post is a brief behind the scenes look at a recent custom typography project I posted on my Glitschka Studios web site.
When I start working out my hand lettering I like to use a standard pencil. I hold it with two three fingers loosely and lightly gesture draw which allows me to flow the letterforms better. I then go in and roughly work out the basic composition. I don’t worry about letter weights at this stage.
