Learn how to create stunning, professional brush lettering through 31 HD video lessons, including basics, lettering theory, first lines, practice words, the alphabet, class projects, and Photoshop & Illustrator.

This course is everything you need to know to get started with brush lettering!

I've poured all my experience as a designer, illustrator, and lettering artist into this, and absolutely know you'll come out of it with the same passion and love for creating that I feel every time I put brush pen to paper.

My aim here is to create practical, actionable lessons from the very first introduction of materials right up to working with your new lettering pieces in Photoshop and Illustrator.
