Handlettering is really fun to do!
It is relaxing, it doesn’t have to take much time to make a quote, and everybody has the tools to start handlettering; you only need a pencil, an eraser, and a (black) pen/fineliner. And paper of course. You’ll definitely need some paper. You could use lots more materials if you wish (lots and lots more!), but these four items are the basics.
Sometimes it is difficult however to come up with a nice quote, or you can’t find the time to just sit down and make something.
Recently I started to participate in handlettering challenges on Instagram, for these reasons. In a handlettering challenge you’ll get a month’s worth of quotes, one for each day. Every day you participate, you post your creation with the corresponding tags on Instagram, so that all participants can see your creation and you can see what the other participants have made. It’s fun!
