Hand Lettering Design
Those of you that have taken my classes before know that we usually spend at least some time in the Fall semester on block lettering. General Art students traditionally worked on a name design project early in the school year while alternating years of animation students created short animated films of their name transforming. This year I’d like to dive a bit deeper into hand lettering and make it a large part of what we do with our sketch journal warm-ups.
The artwork at the head of this post comes from a Pennsylvania based artist named Jason Carne. For a really good example of the type of work he produces, check out this post at his Behance page.
Some examples of work by Jason Carne:
Another artist I came across is Samantha Jayne. Her photos below help illustrate the process an artist will go through from sketchbook to finished production artwork:
Anyhow, come back to this post and check for updates; I’ll be adding more information and additional examples of hand lettering by other artists as we move forward through the semester.
