It was a bit of a strange month for me creatively. I had a lot of energy and motivation but I focused on spring cleaning my house most days. It was work that needed doing but ultimately pushed my art practice down the list of priorities a bit. I also finished up my typography class with the design you see for a patch. I have been working almost every day with a production company to add these to my store but since it’s my first time making a patch it has been a slow process. Hopefully we can finalize the design in the next week and start getting them made. I’m super excited to hold one in my hand eventually. Welcome to May everyone, I hope it holds fresh energy for everyone.
March 2023 Lettering Round Up
Lots of fun with my pointed pen this month. I was starting to feel a little uninspired by my usual brush pens and markers so I decided to challenge myself. I’m still very much a beginner with my pointed pen but when I do get a few lines just right I find it so beautiful. There really isn’t a lot of room for indecision or a lack of control so it can be scary to share these pieces that feel less than perfect. But I actually found more excitement in the challenge which I was desperately needing. As always, follow me on social media to see the videos that go with these pieces. Happy April!
February 2023 Lettering Round Up
I almost forgot to post this months round up because the month felt so short. But here are all my best posts from social media this month. As always be sure to follow me @jwinsorart to see the videos that go along with these pieces. And check out my Patreon for the satisfying real time videos. Happy March everyone!
January 2023 Lettering Round Up
Welcome to 2023 everyone! I was feeling a bit burnt out after the holidays, just trying to post tons of content and keep up with all the family commitments. This month I relied on my tried and true styles and methods. I’m also thinking about adding a listing for custom name requests in my shop. I have one for digital names but I enjoy using my art supplies on paper too. Is anyone interested in that? I get a lot of comments on social media asking me to do a name but I don’t know if that would translate to a purchase in the shop. Maybe I’ll just try it and see what happens!
December 2022 Lettering Roundup
What a year! I grew so much with my art and I kept up with posting almost every day. I’m honestly so proud of myself. I’m entering the new year with a lot of hope that I can keep growing. I hit many major milestones this year… over 1000 followers on Instagram. 200 orders on my Etsy shop. Some posts got major visibility too! I’m so glad I haven’t given up. Let’s see what we can do with the next 365 days.
November 2022 Lettering Round Up
October 2022 Lettering Round Up
This month was a bit rocky for me creatively. I hit a wall towards the end of the month and decided to give myself some days off from feeling like I had to create. Funnily enough one of the posts I did during this time (the BOO with the doodles inside it on black paper) got a nice response on social media. I will have to remember that in the future. How are you feeling creatively this time of year? Are you taking care of yourself?
