Lettering craft 3

Only Human, that’s what lettering is. It is not fonts nor calligraphy. The difference between calligraphy lies in the stroke. Lettering uses fine detailed lines and calligraphy uses one stroke to finish the whole work. This is what lettering for the modern times, makes so very astonishing. Some of the most famous letterers have the power to create their work with one stroke for each ornament and letter, so that the hand looks fluid. Lettering need great practice and patience. Enjoy it!
