Hand Lettering: Inspiration

I’ve been trying to work hand lettering more into my daily habits and have drawn inspiration from a few amazing designers. If you haven’t seen work by Sean McCabe yet, get on it. Seriously amazing and seriously inspirational. This is a collection of work from a bunch of various designers – check out the link to see their dribbble portfolios.

Intricate Patterns

I’ve had a thing for intricate details on handmade work lately. Loving the high contrast black/white feel on both. I’ve been working on playing around with my Crow Quill pen (talked about here) and working on getting details to come out crisper. Right now I’ve just been filling letterforms or whole sheets but I would love to start playing around with using the designs to create images such as these.
