I wanted to change things up a little this week and go super down to basics. The truth is, when it comes to learning, a lot of the times, I’m most inspired by just *watching* the thing happen. Seeing it take place, someone else’s process without all the nitty gritty little details along the way – just the ‘have-to-knows’ first. Maybe you’re like that too. On the chance you are when it comes to lettering, this week I want to go super simple and just share how I would do a basic lettered quote/phrase on the iPad – what I think about as I’m writing, what I’m paying attention to, and what I do to change course when maybe things aren’t going exactly how I like them. If this is something you’d like to see more of, let me know! I want to provide all I can on clearing up anything that might be holding you back 🙂 Full process below – and if you want to go further after this, my Intro to iPad Lettering course is located here. Let’s go!

  • Great video! One question, are you able to rest your hand on your iPad pro when doodling/hand lettering? I’ve had limited experience using a wacom and found getting used to the gestures and not resting my head very hard.

    Also, you mentioned in the video that there are other stylus/pens for older version of the iPad. Do you have any recommendations for an older iPad?

    Thanks!

  • Exactly the help I was looking for and great tips!! (2 finger/3 finger tap)
    Thank you so much for sharing!
