Soda Pop Color Palette. Grab the sweet color palette I used to create this lyrical hand lettering in the Procreate app!
Soda Pop Color Palette
But I read that soda kills you and Jesus saves
-Gavin DeGraw, lyrics from the song “Best I Ever Had”
It’s no secret that Gavin is one of my all-time favorite musical artists, and his lyrics have inspired several lettering pieces I’ve done. This is one I did a bit over a year ago, but I recently updated the color and some of the letters.
Not only is “soda” in the lyrics, but the colors remind me of a vintage soda shop, so that’s why I called this the “Soda Pop Color “Palette.”
SODA POP Artwork Details + Lettering Tips
- I created this Soda Pop lettering and artwork using several of my procreate Procreate Brush Sets, but the textures were all added using The Texture Brush Kit. Check out a close-up look at the textures in this piece below.
- This artwork took me 2 hours and 29 minutes and 1450 pencil strokes from start to finish (not including the time I took to do the original sketching on paper before moving to my iPad). If you want to see how long your Procreate pieces are taking you, it’s super easy:
- With your canvas open in the app, tap the Action tool (the wrench).
- Then, tap “Canvas” > “Canvas Information” > “Statistics”.

Insta-Inspo + Procreate Tips.
- On my Instagram, many of my posts include a “Swipe to watch the process video,” which shows you how I take things from a sketch to a final piece.
- Check out my iPad Lettering video lessons and tutorials. I use many of the tips and techniques I’ve shared in my lettering pieces.
- I hope that you’ll use my color palettes and my work to inspire your own artwork. Please remember, there’s a fine line between being inspired by someone else’s work and being a copycat, so be sure to create something original.
