Lettering Practice: Coffee Humor



I've noticed I have something in common with all of the hand lettering artists whose work I love. We share a love of coffee. 

My preferred drink is iced mochas. Doesn't matter what time of year it is, it's an iced mocha for me. 

So, I attempted to sketch one out ( can you tell my home away from home by the green straw? )  and then scanned in and added a marbled paper background. 



But then I couldn't decide if I wanted to leave it alone or add something more so I played around and added a watercolor "splat" .  Graphics are from The Hungry JPEG. 


Mocha time!

Happy Monday! Be Fierce: Lettering and Graphics Practice


Happy Monday ( I'm trying to convince myself of that). Hope everyone had a great weekend and is off to a good new week. 

Sharing some more lettering practice combined with digital graphics. 


I started with this quote I lettered last week. I go back and forth between coloring my lettering pieces and leaving them black and white so I can play with them once they're scanned in. 

If you are  not familiar with the site The Hungry JPEG, you should be! They have premium design resources ( combination of free and fee). I grabbed a Floral Megabundle one week when it was free ( it's fee now) which is what I used for this graphic. You definitely want to get on their email list or follow them so you'll know when they offer free bundles! 



Using PicMonkey, I changed the background and added a couple of digital elements from the Floral Bundle and done. 


I haven't yet decided what I'm using this graphic for ... most likely it will appear on a future card but one more for my "stash".
