1. My eBook, Getting Started with Brush Lettering (a $29 value!)After fielding tons of questions, I finally sat down and wrote an ebook outlining how exactly to get started with brush lettering. In the book, I go in-depth on choosing the right pens or markers. I talk about brush marker nib types, ink types, paper, accessories, supply organization. Then, I provide the basics of brush lettering: anatomy, practice drills, various letterforms, etc. If you're brand new to brush lettering, this will be an amazing resource to pair with the Paper to Digital course.
2. Downloadable PDF's: worksheets and cheatsheetsThe best way to learn is to practice methods on your own. With downloadable cheatsheets and instructions, you'll be able to follow along after you watch the video courses to replicate certain keyboard shortcuts, etc. While you still have lifetime access to the video courses, sometimes having a cheatsheet is an amazing time-saver.
