Happy Monday all. (Trying to have a better attitude about Mondays!)
I lettered this quote from "Harry Potter" specifically from one of my favorite characters, Hermione Granger.
I was Hermione as a child. My nose always in a book and in love with libraries and and bookstores, and my parents sent me to the dictionary and encyclopedia when I had questions.
I've been practicing "bounce" lettering which basically brings the lower parts of the letter down lower so when you start the next letter it looks higher and "bounces" ( this is completely MY very simple explanation!).
Here are some explanations of bounce lettering from more expert sources.

Another of my favorite HP characters, Mad Eye Moody, sums it up when it comes to lettering: "Constant Vigilance" which translates for me to Practice Practice Practice.
Happy Monday ( working on that).
