For all of you who participate in the @alohakiwichallenge and have never tried lettering before, I’ve made a few practice sheets with the quotes of this month (download here as a ZIP file via my dropbox). You can print them out, trace them, take them as inspiration, copy them, whatever helps you to get into trying out some lettering.
You can see how I’m holding the printed sheet against a window, with a piece of watercolor paper on top of it. This way it’s supereasy to trace the design. Use a waterproof pen so that you’re able to paint over the lettering with watercolors later.
Please don’t sell these designs as your own and tag me @thealohastudios if you use them on your social media.
