Learn My Handlettering Fundamentals!

In this course I will teach you my very own Handlettering Fundamentals! This course is for those who want to learn all about my process, tips, and techniques I use to create handlettering. All you need is a pencil, eraser and paper. I've made this course specially for those who want to learn right on paper. You don't need fancy tools for this course! It's so simple you WON'T need an iPad, a computer, or a tablet. The awesome thing about this course is once you've learned all of my techniques you can take what you've learned and apply them to a digital process! So if you're looking for a handlettering class that doesn't require any expensive tools and teaches the very fundamentals this class is for you!

What will I learn?

In this course I will teach you everything I know about the Fundamentals of Handlettering. These will be techniques that are beneficial to creating great pieces of work! Learning on paper is simple but it helps to get those fundamentals down! Here are a few things you will learn when you take this course:

  • How I create different types of texture without digitizing my work
  • The various ways you can create 3 Dimensional effects for your lettering
  • Different methods I use to add shadow outside of my letters and inside the letters
  • How I make my pieces pop by just adding different types of details!
  • The process on how I handletter from start to finish. From brainstorming to composition to color!
  • Tools I recommend that make your work stand out and look good on paper! No iPad or Computer needed!


I will teach my own style of lettering! Letters A to Z, uppercase, lowercase, and even all the strokes that will help you create all of the letters.
