How to Make Time to Practice Lettering

How to make time to practice lettering |

I’m often asked some form of the question “Is there a trick to this lettering thing you do?” Well, yes, there is. And that trick, friends, is practice.

It sounds so simple, but you wouldn’t believe the look of horror that washes over someone’s face when I tell them I typically practice lettering 1-3 hours per day. I can see the wheels turning in their head, and I know what they’re thinking: “Must be nice, but I don’t have time for that.”

Guess what? Neither do I.

Introducing: The Letter Lovelies Community

Introducing: The Letter Lovelies Community | A Facebook community for handlettering artists and enthusiasts, hosted by Brittany Luiz and Lauren Fitzmaurice (Renmade Calligraphy) |

If you follow me and/or Renmade Calligraphy on Instagram, you’ve probably noticed that we’ve been counting down the days to what we’ve been describing as an awesome project that you can be part of too! Well, friends, today is the day that we’re launching The Letter Lovelies community!

This time last year we didn’t even know each other, and now we talk on the phone most nights and text each other throughout most days. How did this happen? The Instagram lettering community! We found each other through our mutual love of lettering (and Tombow), and became fast friends.
