One of my not-so-secret interests is hand-lettering. I've never really been disciplined about practicing and it's partly because I'm scared of it not being *perfect* and I'm intimidated of the many awesome handletterers out there. However over time, I have learned to not achieve perfection but to strive for progress instead. Additionally, to stop comparing myself to other handletterers but to draw inspiration from them instead.
I've been re-doing one of my old handlettered pieces and I can see a huge improvement which is really motivating :') This is a reminder to keep progress going! Swipe to see my lettering from the summer of 2015 and see the progress!
I have so many side project ideas and I can't wait (a little scared but also excited) to show you guys 🤗 Please stay tuned and to wish me luck 😊
‘Movies of myself’ van Rufus Wainwright. Omdat ik vanmiddag in het pluche zakte met Torre en zijn makker Malte. Ik kon mezelf nergens toe zetten vandaag. Niet alleen door de spelende jongens, die toch on demand deze mama opeisen, maar ook omdat er nog een nasleep sudderde van gister. Telefoontjes. Appjes. Vragen. En ik zie nog steeds die verse gapende glip in het voorhoofdje van Torre geprojecteerd in mijn eigen inhouse bioscoopje. Ik wou dat het leven een Command Z optie had, zo nu en dan. Ik vermoed dat er meer zielen zijn met dat verlangen.
Estou muito feliz em compartilhar que farei a facilitação gráfica do TEDx São Paulo que acontecerá nesta quarta feira, 24 de outubro! A curadoria doTEDx reúne pessoas e ideias maravilhosas, de longe esse é o tipo de conteúdo que mais gosto de trabalhar. Inspiração pura!

It's good to try new painting techniques, like this pixel lettering style inspired by retro gaming where we also experiment painting gradients inside the letters and on the board edges. 🙃
For every goal that is reached there is a moment - in the beginning -when the achievement feels so far away from a reality that it’s on pure Faith that you close your eyes and take the first step towards getting there. So...here goes nothing #brushlettering#tombowbrushpen#happyhalloween
