A Beginner's Guide to Modern Brush Lettering including Practice Sheets for both Uppercase & Lowercase letters.

One of the main reasons why I started an eBook for my Workbook is because I wanted everyone to learn Modern Brush Lettering at the comfort of their own home! I remember when I first started to learn Modern Brush Lettering, I had no idea where to start! I was lost between purchasing the best brush pen brands as a beginner and developing my own style.

After I finally found what worked best for me, I was so honored to host multiple workshops in order to share my tips and techniques about Modern Brush Lettering to others! I decided to create an eBook that will not only help you understand the basics of Modern Brush Lettering, but also cover the common topics and examples I feel will help beginners be successful, based on the frequently asked questions from my workshop students.

In my workbook, I will share my own insight, tips, and techniques on how you can get started learning Modern Brush Lettering. You will also have a chance to hear my own lettering journey and why I believe anyone can learn this beautiful art! I have also decided to do an eBook so that the practice sheets can be printed multiple times for more practice! The ability to print multiple prints for the practice sheets will help you be more successful with your lettering journey!

The guide contains 60+ pages total divided into 5 sections.

Includes practice sheets for both uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, additional practice on bouncy lettering, finding your own style + additional practice pages!

This guide is perfect for beginners who would like to explore how to get started & practice modern brush lettering!

The guide introduces step-by-step examples of the following:
- Basics on understanding your brush pens
- How to hold your brush pen
- Understanding different pressure levels
- Understanding the tools to get started
- Common practice drills and Breakdown of Drills
- Additional pages for practice drills
- Fauxcalligraphy
- How to connect letters
- Examples of connecting letters
- Techniques on how to achieve bouncy lettering
- Additional bouncy lettering practice
- Understanding how your lettering style will change
- Additional practice for finding your own style

I recommend printing the sheets on smooth paper (ex: HP Laser Jet Premium Paper 24lb or 34lb) on an inkjet printer or print at your local print shop on smooth-finish printer paper.
