November 2019

Welcome to episode no.2 of my new monthly series, Hand Lettering Style Studies! If you missed episode 1, you can catch it here 😉 This week, we’re talking about the simple script lettering style. This one is really important if you plan to create any variation of script lettering in the future. You’ll learn all of the basics: how each script character is formed, the order of the strokes and how to keep the style consistent. Refer to the style overview for the best applications to use this style on, too! Grab the free printable and Procreate practice sheets below to follow along!

It’s the last Thursday in October, which means it’s time for your free November 2019 desktop wallpapers! This month’s wallpaper was entirely created in Procreate, with just the dates added in using Photoshop and my font, Miss Magnolia. I started drawing some leaves for this one, and then I just couldn’t stop! So here is a leafy explosion for November 😉 The lettering and doodles were both made using my ‘Mono Marker’ brush from my Font Lovers Procreate Lettering BrushesFor the dates, ‘R’ is for Thursday, to distinguish it from a same-sized Tuesday ‘T’ at a glance. 

The download includes the November 2019 desktop wallpapers in two common resolutions: 1280x1024px and 1920x1080px, with and without dates. I’ve left the year off of the ‘no-dates’ versions, so you can use it for any November in the future, too!

I wanted to try something new this week! I thought it would be fun to show how to create something analog/traditionally, then how to recreate that same artwork in Procreate. Two tutorials in one 😉 For this video, we’ll create watercolor block lettering with some traditional methods, then we’ll move into Procreate after. Read on for the full tutorial!

Many of you know I teach a course on converting your hand lettering into a professional, sellable font. But what if you’re new to lettering and want to create a font? In this new monthly series, called Hand Lettering Style Studies, I will guide you through all the steps to create modern lettering styles that are on trend, with practice sheets included! Each month, a new video will be released plus *free* practice guides. If there’s a style you’d like to see in a future video, please leave it in the comments section! First up for this month: every hand lettering stroke you’ll ever need! Read on for the video + free practice sheets!

This is one of those questions that has a lot of variables, so I’m sharing my process specifically this week. The main variables include what kind of monitor you have, what kind of printer you’re using and what type of paper you’re printing on. There are SO many different combinations of those three items that it’s difficult to say, ‘do this and you’re set!’ I’ll break down everything to keep in mind, though, and share my best tips for how to print artwork from Procreate. Read on to see all my tips!

I am SO excited to announce my newest course today: Watercolor Lettering in Procreate! I’ve spent the last two months refining my process and making all of the projects, then creating bonuses, a brand new brush set, recording + editing and today is finally the day! In this 8 project course, you’ll learn how to create beautiful + realistic watercolor lettering in Procreate! I’ve also included a bonus on floral + foliage foundations since we have a few floral typography projects, too. And to set you up best for success, I’ve included ALL of my watercolor lettering brushes and paper textures, so you can follow along exactly. Read on for all the details + course trailer!

It’s the last Thursday in September, which means it’s time for your free October 2019 desktop wallpapers! This month’s wallpaper was entirely created in Procreate, with just the dates added in using Photoshop and my font, Miss Magnolia. I wanted to try something new this month with a depth effect/playing with brush transparency. The lettering and doodles were both made using my free custom brush pen (available in the Resource Library). For the dates, ‘R’ is for Thursday, to distinguish it from a same-sized Tuesday ‘T’ at a glance. 

The download includes the October 2019 desktop wallpapers in two common resolutions: 1280x1024px and 1920x1080px, with and without dates. I’ve left the year off of the ‘no-dates’ versions, so you can use it for any October in the future, too!

I’m realllly excited about this week’s Procreate tutorial! Little polaroids are some of my favorite things to make – you’ll definitely notice that if you’ve spent any time on my site. Now that Procreate has the quick shape tool, they’re super simple to make! In this week’s tutorial, I’m sharing how to create peeling polaroids in Procreate by applying 3 different shadow types. I’m even sharing my method for applying a trendy shadow on the top, too! Read on to see it all!

I’m so excited to give you a peek behind the scenes today! Spence and I recently remodeled my studio space, so today we’re giving you a before + after studio tour! This new studio space now has a dedicated area for recordings/hand lettering/craft work and one for computer/design work. Having both spaces completely separate has already made a difference in my workflow. Read on for the full tour!

This is one of my new favorite lettering effects in Procreate! A couple years ago, I showed how to do something similar in Photoshop, so I thought, “Why not try it in Procreate?” Turns out, it’s even easier in Procreate! I love how it looks with multiple letters, too. This week, we’re creating a paper cut out effect in Procreate. Read on to see how and pick up the colors + brush used in the tut for free!
