I know we just recently flipped the calendar to September, but that means October is right around the corner! This October it is my pleasure to bring you another FREE month-long series exploring handwriting, calligraphy, and creative lettering.
You’ve learned some of the basics of lettering, now it’s time to explore further!
Are you a beginner? No worries, this is still completely do-able! We won’t be adding pointed pen to this series. Sorry, for those of you that are disappointed. I just don’t want that to be rushed through as a small part of this series. We’re going to use some of the same supplies we used last fall. I’m busy compiling a new list that I’ll try to keep short and sweet, but I promise that if you joined us for the first part you’ll already have many of the supplies on hand.

What is your goal for Love Your Lettering, Part 2?
I’ve already got some rough ideas for the posts in this series, but I’m open to your feedback. If you’ve already finished or are working through the first LYL series, what technique do you feel needs further explanation? What else do you want to accomplish with your lettering?
New live demos!
A large part of the fun and success of LYL1 was the live broadcasting to demonstrate and answer questions, so we’ll do that again. I’ll work on a schedule for Periscope and Facebook Live, and I’ve finally learned a little bit more about YouTube, and videos will be posted there for future use (sorry, I’m still working on updating last year’s videos from Katch).
So, are you ready?!?! I am!
