Slightly Obsessed.

I had a teacher in high school who encouraged me – repeatedly – to take a calligraphy class. I thought it looked fairly easy to do, not to mention boring, and I never wanted to waste an elective on it. Eventually I taught myself the basics and did a few pieces – mainly just to prove that I could.

I've spent the last few weeks working on hand lettering projects for a client and gotten fairly obsessed with the whole process. I've spent way too many hours googling fancy writing, calligraphy, hand lettering, handwriting and drooling over the work of some talented artists.

Now the project is done and the lettering is finding it's way into my sketchbook. I'm even adding what I could title a spread as a criteria when I'm looking for things to draw.

Yep, just a little obsessed.
