love for letters


It’s not something I do super often lately, but I have always, always loved hand lettering.

I can trace this interest/hobby back to my earliest days as a young girl, doodling every chance I got. I thoroughly enjoyed art classes in school and found a bit of excitement in Mrs. Winkler’s art assignments in high school. I was the poster-making volunteer in school, at church, and even for the local hardware store. It just became the thing I did.

One of those art assignments from Mrs. Winkler was to come up with a postage stamp design. I don’t recall any other specifics, but I do remember falling in love with the story of Helen Keller and she became my focus for the project. For some reason I hung on to the finished piece all these years. I recently came across this and several other things that I’m sharing today.


There’s no lettering on this next piece, but it was with all the other things I had saved from high school and college. It was another art project – obviously abstract, and clearly, I had a thing for eyes. And leaves. And to this day, I can’t really explain either, except that perhaps I found them easy to draw? It’s just weird enough that I can’t bring myself to even consider hanging this on any wall … anywhere … not even in a closet. Ha! But it is fun to look back and see what I was doing back in the day. And oh, how I loved my Prismacolor pencils.


While in college, I enrolled in a calligraphy class. Love, love, loved that class. Learned a thing or two about hand lettering in a completely different discipline than my teenage doodles. It was hard, actually. Here are some of my finished projects from that class … all with actual calligraphy pens … dipped in ink and all.



Another leaf. There I go again.  ; )

Fast forward a few years. At the age of 22, I published my first book – The Art of Creative Lettering. I hand lettered alphabet after alphabet after alphabet and broke them down step-by-step in an effort to teach others how easy lettering could be. I busted out those Prismacolor pencils again for this project. Anyone happen to still have this little gem in your collection of idea books back before blogs and social media were all you needed for inspiration?


One might find an occasional doodle from me while on a focused conference call … or on a letter addressed to a special friend. But really, for the most part it’s a thing of the past for me. And that’s okay. I’ve evolved and I continue to evolve, and hand lettering is something that I now enjoy seeing my own children dabble with. In fact … Claire is just getting started with her very first set of Prismacolor pencils for her art class. I can’t wait to see what she does with them.



After all these years, I do find myself drawn to the alphabet in various creative ways. This was one way that I used a bunch of random letter stickers for display. I made it several years ago.


I wanted to pass this along to one of you who might enjoy having it. Of course I’ll personalize it with your name & my signature if you’d like. Simply leave your first name + city + state/country. We’ll add the winner’s name at the bottom of this post on Friday, so be sure to check back in case you’re the randomly selected winner!

    I taught myself calligraphy in high school and love doing it to this day.

    Loved this blog post, Becky! Do you have “Famous Dave’s” BBQ restaurant in AZ? If so, you know how they hang artwork and artifacts on the walls in themed sections/groupings? You could could do that in your basement and have a section for your high school art! :-)

    I look forward to reading your BLOG every day!

    I love the house of Helen Keller, she was amazing and left a mark in our world. I was interested in her early on in life read a lot about her, then I had a completely blind gdaughter who is so amazing, I think somehow I led the way of people and blindness growing up so when she came along,I may be able to understand more, not sure but still. LOVE that picture you have a lot of talent. Thank you for sharing these.

    Job well done!

    Loved to see your artwork from high school. I have saved some of my own from AP Art and have it hanging in my classroom. I had a “fish” stage. Not really sure why (There is no interest, hobby, etc. I had that really connected to fish.) I went through more Prismacolor pencils than I wish to recall. I especially loved the blues…

    Speaking of school, I am very excited to be starting my Project Life book of my classroom events. Another teacher in the building has her students type up little summaries to go with pictures that she takes, but I am going to give them PL cards instead. When students return back to elementary or have brothers/sisters come through, it will be nice to see what they wrote and thought about school at that time. I have students for three years before they go to middle school. Even in that amount of time they grow and change sooo much. Thanks for having many fun options to choose from. It is nice to have a selection of cards to meet their unique personalities. I have opted to step aside from a traditional school theme and use cards from a variety of my kits.

    I still have that book of yours, and a number of others (I think my eldest son bought it for me). I used to consult it all the time and have many hand-lettered titles. Thanks for the inspiration that you have provided over MANY years

    And yes I have a copy of your lettering book, and EVERY other book of yours too!!! I flew from WA to see you in Sydney years ago, even though there was no room in the class, I just sat at the back and watched. Sadly, I work full time now in a school, so can’t get to your spotlight class in Perth. Devastated doesn’t begin to describe it!!

    My class (6c) and me are doodling almost every day too. They enjoy it very much to develop their writing skills, but not always and everyone. Mainly our dyslexics have to be encouraged every day anew. Your brillant peace of artwork would do this, I think, by being “perfectly imperfect”, know what I mean?

    Oh Becky! What a lovely “blast from the past”!!! I of course own all of your books, but the Creative Lettering one is still near and dear to my heart. Like you, I’ve not gone back to do the lettering you so painstakingly taught in the book (and several classes at my LSS), but it’s such a lovely memory. I do wish, however, you would consider hanging YOUR artwork *somewhere* in your home; it’s YOU, just from long ago. It’ll remind you how far you’ve come and evolved. But that’s just my two-cents worth. :) As always, you’re awesome. And needless to say, would LOVE to hang this fun piece in my home! Thanks!
