Drop Caps & Quotes

hallow men believe in luck or in circumstance. Strong men believe in cause and effect.

― Ralph Waldo Emerson

ands are only as powerful as the wizards who use them. Some wizards just like to boast that theirs are bigger and better than other people’s.”

—J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Zest is the secret of all beauty. There is no beauty that is attractive without zest.

—Christian Dior quotes

I love quotes. Let’s be real, everyone has quotes or words that mean a lot to them. Last week for my Hand Lettering class we were given the task of making Drop Caps. Drop caps are letters that are dropped down in the text that start off the sentence of a paragraph or chapter. I decided to make mine to match this lovely Love Lemon blog (for your viewing pleasure).

I’ve had some fun learning about how to paint and write with ink and brush, so that is the technique I used above. Hand lettering is addicting. Be on the lookout for some water color hand lettering coming soon!
