When I started my hand lettering journey I knew little to nothing about resources, tools or anything that could help me out getting started. The first pen I ever used was a highlighter and #2 pencil and even though I had no idea what I was doing I was beyond excited with the results. Looking back now I realize if I had the right resources I would have been able to pick the right tools for what I was trying to accomplish.
I've been a lover of letters since I can remember but in 2012 when I moved to the US I found an amazing culture on typography and lettering that was completely new to me; made from scratch letterforms with an incredible personal and expressional touch.
Now, if you like me, are at a point where you have found this amazing craft but you have no idea where to start here are a few things that will help you get going.
