I ordered Acrylograph pens from Archer & Olive and had fun playing with them yesterday. BUT looking at the above, I’m sort of grossed out by it. I don’t think I like too much ‘decoration’ (or really much at all!) in my planning.
It was still fun to play, though!
Some of you asked about hand-lettering resources. I have a friend who is a graphic designer with expertise in typography (so cool, right?). She asked her lettering-expert friends who recommended the following 2 Skillshare courses:
1- Why We Letter: Designing with Friends of Type with Jason Wong and Dennis Payongayong
2- Creative Hand Lettering: Design Exercises with Image and Letters with Erik Marinovich
Then, several of you kind readers chimed in with recs, too, including:
3- Skillpop’s Handlettering Basics (new!). (Extra cool = the CEO commented and happens to be a BOBW listener 🙂 ).
I have not tried any of these but I plan to dive in soon.
I did not make banana bread yesterday. Cameron was all excited to make it with me, and I printed the Kitchn recipe (because it looked the easiest!) and then — we had used all of the eggs at lunch! Oops. Hopefully the bananas will survive until today and we can try again after I grocery shop.
What I did do: read a huge chunk of Big Summer. OMG it is very addictive!
