Hand drawn typography

I've always loved typography but admit to not really extending myself to design any or use hand drawn typography in my artwork. I know it is all the rage now so i have to get my fine motor skills up to speed again and practice, practice, practice.
Using a keyboard and mouse certainly weakens the hand muscles...
I had fun getting into the procedure whilst completing these typography examples. From pencil to staedtler pigment liner, scanner to illustrator, the whole process took me a good couple of hours.
I can now understand and appreciate all the work that goes into adding hand drawn typography into your designs. Here's a peek into some of my recent efforts.

My website is live!!!!

Hello there! Have to say I had a fantastic day today. Designing, filing, sorting (necessary housekeeping to keep all my files neat and easy to find on my mac), and all so I could accomplish what I thought would be an arduous task. I completed the first draft of my website. www.patternplaystudio.com

I say first draft because I will have heaps of patterns to add to it in the future (fingers crossed) and some copy writing to do as well. :)

So head on over to www.patternplaystudio.com and say hello.
