Today, I thought it’d be fun to share a little process video of how my lettering is done!
As you probably know, most of my work is hand-painted or hand-drawn. But what happens after it’s done by hand, and scanned in? There is often a lot of touching up if it’s a floral pattern. I particularly love doing lettering though– call me strange, but I find tracing things very therapeutic. Below shows a short video (sped up 800%, or else you would all fall asleep) of some tracing over my sketch with a pen tool in illustrator. I did this piece in three parts over a couple of days. I’d forgotten to record the 3rd part that leads to this final bit, but I think you’ll get the gist, right?
The finished piece is an issue feature for the November issue of Skirt! magazine in the US. Hope you like it!
