"Carol's class was so much fun! The techniques and ideas she shared with us opened up limitless creative possibilities. My interest in lettering may well turn into a passion! Her work and her artistic accomplishments are inspiring!" Sally K. Gardnerville, NV
I have been having a great time these last few months writing Art Business articles for the on-line magazine above and creating coloring images out of words to enhance the article's message. Here is one working with the words "Go with the Flow!" Once you understand the dynamics in creating all of the letters of our alphabet you can create some amazing art with words. Sign up for a lettering class today and write your own message.
Here it is written in what I would call a somewhat boxey and squared style of lettering with out any flowing descenders. Simple, Forceful and Direct ! Letters set the mood! How would you write your word for 2017!
