Since we've started Wilde House Paper, I've been looking for ways to letter outside of my usual styles and create more of an illustration with lettering, rather than just words. It's been tough (sounds silly, but breaking out of a routine after years of practice is hard!), but it's also opened my eyes to the fact that I need to learn more. I kind of stopped searching the web for tutorials and inspiration when I felt comfortable with my lettering. Luckily WH gave me a shake and woke me up... how are you ever supposed to grow and improve if you don't continue learning? So, when I found this quote, I thought it was perfect for our first desktop download of 2016 and a great everyday reminder.
If you want to jump start some new skills too, I'd recommend checking out Skillshare. I've saved about 100 classes that range from business to illustration. A goal of mine is to take a new class every week or two depending on how long they are. I've also partnered with Skillshare, so if you decide to try it out, with referral from my site, you'll receive a 30-day free trial (instead of the standard 14-day) when you sign up for a Premium Membership. I've been using it for years and highly recommend it for those of you looking to learn quickly, at home, and on a budget!
And remember, I LOVE your input, so if you guys have any quotes you'd love to see on a desktop, send them over! You might see yours pop up in the future;)
