Trying My Hand In Handlettering

Like I said last week, I started trying handlettering at the beginning of this month! I only have a few designs, I’ve just been playing around while watching Netflix at home, and it’s not a “serious” hobby yet. Here are the quotes I’ve drawn so far!

"Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be." - Abraham Lincoln

“Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.” – Abraham Lincoln

"Happy people just don't shoot people. They just don't!" - Legally Blonde

“Happy people just don’t shoot people. They just don’t!” – Legally Blonde

"I dress to kill, but tastefully." - Freddie Mercury

“I dress to kill, but tastefully.” – Freddie Mercury

"What position you think that's gonna put you in?" - Blue Bloods

“What position you think that’s gonna put you in?” – Blue Bloods

"The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step." - Lao Tzu

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” – Lao Tzu

The first three are quotes from the podcast I do with my friend Sowmya (we end each episode with an inspirational or funny quote), the fourth one is just a random quote I felt like illustrating from the episode I was watching at the time, and the last one I pulled from my 30 Day Challenge (“Post some words of wisdom that speak to you.”). I barely put any color in them, just the Freddie Mercury one because i wanted to outline the dress (it’s supposed to look like a dress? #fail) but I really like drawing fonts!

Let me know what you guys think!
