‘Life Begins After Coffee’ lettering in a very good shape! I really love the whole type combination and the illustration of a classic coffee blender as a perfect detail for the center piece. Great job! // Originally drawn by Ditra S. Umbara | @sembadha & featured by SPECIMEN • INK | www.specimen.ink

#drawlloween kicks off tonight. 31 days of Halloween themed fun in October - it’s mostly for illustrators, but I figured I’d play along with some lettering each day. Day 1 - Spider.

I’m going to limit myself to less than an hour per drawing to make this into a speed/quick thinking/on the spot creativity challenge for myself.

I did a hand lettering tutorial a few months back for the GoMedia Arsenal. It has over 90 minutes of content and I go over everything from which tools I use, how to select the right ones for the job at hand, where and how to pursue reference material, composition, layout, rough sketches, inking, coloring, texturing and mocking up a design and more. This is a page I just came across again in my notebook from that tutorial - it was kind of an improv bit of the video where I just whipped this together randomly showing the difference in pens (fine liner, brush tip, and parallel pen).

Here’s that design I posted the other day in it’s final form. Really enjoyed working on this for @rickshawbags - production photos to follow sometime soon!

Another piece I did for @rickshawbags and possibly my favorite of the bunch. I love being given a lot of copy to fill out a more elaborate layout, it’s always a fun challenge.

Another incredible original specimen from Daniel T. Ames in the collection I browsed the other day. This one had some corrections made in white (may be hard to see here) but it’s nice to know even the masters needed to tweak their work from time to time.
