For the past few weeks I’ve been working on hand lettering to add to our products. Hand drawn or painted on chalkboard custom built boards, wooden palets or on card stock for framing. I love motivational quotes to inspire someone to travel the world, get through their day or get through their jobs, but I also love the unexpected humorous quotes that jump out and slap you. I’ve only gotten a few drawn out for examples and I’ve had to look at a few designs to get my lettering down. All in all, I think I’m doing ok at this hand lettering project.
My favorite is a quote I saw a while ago that I put to my own hand lettering devices , “We go together like drunk and disorderly”. It starts by making you think it’s going to be mushy sweet quote like we go together like rainbow sparkles and sunshine but instead you get drunk and disorderly, which is in my opinion, hilarious. What relationship is rainbow sparkles and sunshine? And if you’re thinking it’s yours, what unicorn are you riding to work everyday?
Humor is the best asset you can have, in my opinion.
Take a look at a few of my hand lettering sketches and let me know your thoughts, I love feedback and ideas. My Drunk and Disorderly isn’t completed since I haven’t put ink into it just yet. Since it’s my fav, I tend to put it off until the perfect day.
Don’t forget to go outside today, it’s a beautiful day to wander!
