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!
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?
September 2022 Lettering Round Up
Wow this month I absolutely ran the gamut of all the techniques I know. I also had a really exciting “first” where a company reached out to offer me some products to test out. I wanted to do something really ambitious so I worked on my design for the “Any thing is possible” piece for many days. It was an exciting challenge. I may still put out a digital version with different colors at some point.
Finally I made some tweaks to my Patreon page by renaming the tiers (friend and bestie levels) and reducing the price. I would love to get a community going over there. I share tutorials on my paintings when I do those and I always post a real time video of any satisfying lettering I do too.

See you next month!
