Our grand plan was to have this tutorial recorded yesterday, but there’s a little thing called time that seems to endlessly get in our way–le sigh… The quickest and easiest way to clean your illustrations? Well, our Lettering Rx set of course! Firstly, let me address a couple things. It is Lettering Rx, don’t let the name fool you, if you are a lettering artist, chances are that you are creating motifs as well, hand drawn logos, maps, etc. We didn’t think it was necessary to try to sell you a whole new set when Lettering Rx would do just perfectly, thank you! Think of it as two awesome tools for the price of one. Secondly, yes we are pushing our goods BUT I have thought of this ad naseum and if we didn’t create this product and we discovered it we sure as heck would be sharing it like crazy. I almost wish we didn’t let you know we created it so we could freely enthuse about it without feeling a bit full of ourselves or sales-y. We are so excited though and we want everyone that has been partaking in lettering and illustration to be able to easily clean and digitize their work to share with the world or even better to start making an income from their creative endeavors, after all that’s one of the main reasons we write this blog is encourage you to pursue your passions, indulge in your creative interests and hopefully you will find a nugget here to generate an income from your creative bliss.
One of the fastest ways to be able to sell your lettering + illustrations (and not deal with sourcing, production and shipping) is to use your hi-res cleaned artwork (top tip: scan or photograph your artwork with a high resolution) with a company that allows you to create your own products using your artwork (like pillows, t-shirts, totes, prints, blankets, etc.) Resources are linked below to some retailers for you to explore and of course all the tools you may need to get up and running! I seriously could get my artwork from scanned, cleaned, digitized and for sale in a matter of minutes. Ah, technology! Please feel free to leave any questions or let us know of any other resources in the comments!

P.S. Sorry for the overzealous intro to the tute, taping them is SO nerve wracking!
