Anyone else remember the days when Champion was a bargain brand found at Walmart/ sports direct? 😂
Funny how fashion (like most things) is cyclical and these classic sports brands are now some of the hottest around. Makes me wonder, what’s next? 🧐 #logodesinger#cal#calligraphy#brushlettering #calligraphy
Can you tell which logo this lettering was based on? 💖
This was a super fun commissioned piece to work on! experimenting with stencil patterns is definitely something I’ll be doing more of in the future.
I’m making a point of letting you know this was a PAID FOR PROJECT because I get hundreds of DM’s a week from people asking me to paint their name for free 😂 surely I’m not alone in this?!
Describe this with words beginning with ‘L’! 💚
Constraints foster creativity.
I’ve been posting on Instagram for 6 years now, but it wasn’t until I began experimenting with single letters that people began to take notice.
Focusing on a single letter really helped me understand Typography and learn how to get creative within the confines of the 26 letters.
This is why at my 3D lettering workshops we focus on drawing, and then painting a 3D letter my students are always proud of.
In one months time my European workshop tour will begin and I’m so excited to meet even more of you creative people from around the world!
Many of you have already booked your seats and the workshops are likely to sell out. So, to join us for a day of laughs and lettering check out the link in my bio for all the information.
How to never get creative block again:
Step 1: look back over your previous artworks/ designs and pick two (if you’re just starting out, choose two creations of other peoples work).
Step 2: choose an element of each (anything from colour, to technique, or even presentation) and find a new and unique way to combine them.
Step 3: Experiment! It might not work the first try, but keep at it and you’ll come up with some way to combine them into something new.
This is exactly how I designed this letter form. Do you like the contrasting styles?

It’s been such a pleasure creating so much content this year for you the viewer as well as some incredible clients and collaborators!
I’m taking a second to review some of my favourite pieces, and wanted to get feedback to help me decide what artworks/ style to explore more.

On a second note, I’ve just released my hand lettering workshop tour dates! You can see which cities around Europe I’m teaching in and sign up to learn how to create lettering like these via the link in my bio. 👀

I’m always amazed at what you, the attendees of my lettering workshops can accomplish is just 6 hours! Some of you even going from 0 experience, to painting the incredible 3D letters you see in this post! 😍
