Handlettering challenges: my entries

Handlettering is one of my creative outlets.

Sometimes I find it difficult to come up with things to handletter, so I participate in handlettering challenges on Instagram (you can read more about it in this post). It is fun and it solves my lack of inspiration 🙂

Below you can find my latest entries:

Mr. Roboto. There also are doodle challenges. I’m not much of a doodler, but I can just manage a robot.

Recognize the quote? It’s from The Karate Kid. I watched that movie lots of times.

Wow, that was a lot! But then, handlettering challenges are so great to participate in 🙂

As you may have seen I occasionally try brushlettering. Brushlettering is handlettering with a brushpen, a pen with a soft tip. It gives a very pretty result, at least, if you’re good at it. I’m still at a practicing level, it is quite hard to master! If you want to learn more about brushlettering, google and youtube have lots of tips and info (the searchwords are already entered in the link, just click and you will automatically go to the relevant page).

In the meantime I am also working on lots of other things. For example, I just finished a bag I made for my sister. I will show the pictures next time.

Have a nice day!
