Lettering Inspiration: Instagram Features
I can already tell this is going to become one of my favorite posts to write each month. I love browsing the #yesDNDfeatures hashtag to look at all the lovely lettering work. You all make it super hard to only pick ten!
If you’re interested in having your work featured, you can read about all how to get featured here.
This Month’s Features
In no particular order, here are this month’s inspiring examples of lettering! You can click any photo or Instagram handle link to go visit the featured artist on IG. I’d love it if you pop over to your favorites and say something kind and/or congratulate them on their feature!
The beautiful brush calligraphy, the fab flourishing, and Lauren’s use of blending with the Tombow Dual Tip markers are on point!
Now, this is how you mix lettering styles and add character with flair! And the phrase just makes me happy too.
Proof that bold Sans Serif letters can be anything but boring when you add some bright colors and simple inline details!
Because Harry Potter rocks. I’m on book seven right now and I’m so sad I’m nearly done with the whole series.
I also picked this piece because it has so much character. I love how Kirsty mixed script and serif lettering styles. Her blending and details are eye candy.
The artful way she mixed floral illustrations and lettering immediately caught my eye!
I love that Mandy used “just” pencil for this piece. You don’t need fancy supplies to create awesome pieces! And how great is all that flourishing?
And using only a pencil is totally inline with one of our 2018 Lettering Challenge Prompts (on Sketch it Saturdays, we stick to lettering with just a pencil). It’s not too late to join in the fun!
File this under why didn’t I think of that?! Zakiyya is a watercolor maven. Painting one of her lovely pieces inside bold sans serif letters has me all ?. My eyes might have actually turned into little red hearts!
Carmia’s feed is so full of deliciously colorful watercolor lettering, it was hard to pick just one. Unicorns for the win!
Congrats to all of the featured artists!
