Some heavy hitters in the lettering world are teaching both on-line and in person classes this month, for those wondering where to get started I have listed some great places to visit!
For those of you that haven’t signed up yet for the Molly Jacques Skillshare class, what are you waiting for? I have enrolled but being that it’s hard for me to do anything these days I still haven’t had a chance to watch! I have heard good things about the class, that it’s a great place to start for beginners. Speaking of beginner’s if you are new to Skillshare you can use my instant discount and get the class for only $10! Seriously, what’s stopping you? And for those that have taken Skillshare classes in the past I have been begging them to give you all a discount since I do know a lot of you are signing up for multiple classes and it does add up, I promise to keep you posted if they will oblige me on this! If not, then I will keep my eye out on alternate resources.
Another fave Mary Kate McDevitt, you may have seen her work in your local Anthro as she has done a lot for Chronicle Books is launching her new class ‘The First Steps of Hand Lettering-Concept to sketch‘ It doesn’t launch until October 16th, but I am anxious to sign-up!
The darling + talented (and nicest person on earth) Maybelle Imasa-Stukuls will be in Australia next week a Megan Morton’s School for a week of classes, there’s all day and half day available, some are sold out but I see a couple still open. I want to go to Australia so badly and Megan’s School would be one of my dream, stops. Sign-up here!
The extraordinarily prolific font designer Jess of Magpie Paperworks has launched another winner of a font! I don’t know how she is doing it, because putting together a font is not easy, especially when they are as robust as Jess makes hers, and to continue to introduce coveted fonts at that? The woman is obviously a genius.
P.S. Do you have a class (any class, it doesn’t need to calligraphy/lettering centric) that you think I should know about? I get asked about classes for specific locales all the time, especially international ones, so please let me know besottedblog [at] gmail [dot] com
P.P.S. Jessica Hische of Drop Cap fame is teaching a lettering class (that looks amazing) in November!
