Sketchnotes-SF Meetup :: Round 19 :: Down & Dirty Lettering [Tue Jun 16, 2015]

22,899 views

Published on

Deck from the Sketchnotes-SF meetup in June at Neo [http://neo.com/]. We practiced lettering, using our natural writing styles to explore and expand our lettermaking abilities. We started with a quick warm-up, then jumped into rapid practice, sharing work and getting inspired by peers at each stage. Then we jumped into a TED talk to practice capturing words in context. The evening wrapped up with links to resources to explore.
