Artsy weekend tiiiime!! I’ve been seriously trying to learn calligraphy and lettering during the past months and, oh my gosh, I can’t stop paying attention to labels, logos and all the places where lettering appears. A good example of how we see a lot of things during the day but hardly pay attention to any of it. Now I’m more aware of how pretty the flourishes look on that boutique’s name or that kick-ass lettering masterpiece on an artisan beer’s label. I’m still quite mediocre at calligraphy, it does require a lot of practice, but it is a gratifying experience, there is something quite special about hand lettering.
