This workshop will cover the basics of hand-lettering and will consist in an analog (pencil/paper) class where sketching by hand would be the main focus. Coming up with a piece of lettering from sketching thumbnails to selecting an idea, enlarging your piece, working in layers, refining and editing your sketch until you have a final pencil drawing.
People with no experience drawing are encouraged to come, we will focus on letting your hand loose and understanding the fundamentals of lettering so you can draw your first piece.
