Sugar Rush Color Palette
Halloween is just around the corner and I’m mentally preparing myself for the daily bartering my kids will do with their candy haul. Just thinking about the Sugar Rush that’s coming inspired my latest lettering piece.
“How many pieces of candy can I have, Mom?” 😜
I’m not much of a candy person, but I’ve been known to sneak a Reese’s or two from their bags!
SUGAR RUSH Artwork Details + Lettering Tips
- I created this Sugar Rush lettering and artwork using my newest Procreate Brushes: The Texture Brush Kit.
- Don’t be afraid to use non-traditional colors for your work! My candy corn colors are anything but traditional which makes this piece more evergreen and less seasonal.
- Textures give your work added interest! Check out the closeup of the textures in this piece below.
- Watch this Textured Ampersand Video Tutorial and this Love Lettering Video Tutorial for more help with using textures.
- You can learn this Serif Lettering Style in my Quinn Style Lettering Workbook.
It’s also fun to use a mockup to see what your work would look like on a physical item. I used a tote bag mockup to see how this artwork would look. Check it out below!

- Use them in design programs such as Photoshop and Illustrator.
- Match your physical art supplies (markers, colored pencils, watercolors, etc.) to the palette and work the old-school way!
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.
