Since I'm still waiting on a team kit for my new bike team, I made this rad shirt for my last short-track race of the season!
Tackling 100 days of hand lettering once again this spring. Last year I only made it to day 30 or so. I learned a lot about my process last year and hope to not make the same mistakes. This time around, the lettering will be more illustrative and experimental yet, simple. So far I'm pretty excited with the stuff I've been messing around with! I've set up a separate Instagram for my lettering adventures, you can check it out at: https://www.instagram.com/aesthetically_gretch/
Day 3: Never Enough Time
The story of my life. So much to do, so little time.
Day 4: Simple
Keep it simple, man.
Day 5: Sisters & Brothers
For my siblings. #nationalsiblingday
Day 7: I Like Big Type, And I Cannot Lie
I'm having a lot with this fat tip marker.
Day 2 of #The100DayProject. I played this record at work today.
Starting tomorrow I will be taking part in The Great Discontent and Elle Luna’s The 100 Day Project! For the next 100 hundred days I will challenge myself in the art of lettering, and I will be sharing my work here and on my Instagram. In this challenge I will explore different styles and techniques and will hopefully come up with something that’s my own. I’ve dabbled in lettering in the past but never really focused on it. Since moving to PDX, I’ve started going to the Portland Lettering Collective meetups and have found so much inspiration, I’m ready to do this in full force.
I can’t promise the stuff I share will be polished, finished or even pretty. In fact, it will probably be rough. I feel pretty vulnerable sharing that kind of work publicly, but I guess that’s what makes this pretty exciting :) I’m really looking forward to seeing what I accomplish in the next 100 days.
