  1. Thank you! I’m a lefty and I still have a lot of trouble holding my pen to get the correct up and down strokes. Any tips?

        The worksheets have two colors… dark grey and light grey…why the dufferebce

        1. I’m not seeing the difference you’re talking about! On my end, the drills are all the same color grey. Either way, just use them as a guide to letter overtop and get a feel for the shape!

  2. Thank you for sharing your tips.

      You’re so welcome Terry!

  3. Honestly I still have problem for writing some letter such as “S”, “F”, and “Z”. I download some worksheets but it still feels awkward for me and pretty hard to find my own “style” so that I can write better. But thanks for some tips abt two-tone method, I always thought to go with darker pen first.

  6. I was given some brush pens for Christmas. They are a brand I’ve never heard of. I’m wondering if they are not very good pens because no matter how hard or light I push, the line is the same width. The pens do have a fine tip on the other end, so I used the fine tip to create the lighter lines. That looked disconnected. Should I be able to create both thick and thin lines using the brush tip?

    1. That’s strange to hear, Leigh! I’ve never had a brush pen that refused to flex. What brand are they, if you don’t mind me asking? A brush pen ought to be able to give you both thick and thin lines.

    2. It may help you to hold your brush markers at about a 45 degree angle. Play around and find an angle where when you write lightly, only the tip touches the paper, but when you press downward the side of the brush collapses and touches the paper making a wider line. This is hard to explain, but if you hold your brush marker too close to straight up and down, when you press down, your line won’t get appreciably wider. Even worse, you will fray the tip of the brushes so that they make fuzzy lines. Then the brushes may be useful for water painting type art, but they will work well for lettering,

      I am wondering whether you have Aenart dual brush pens. I bought some on Amazon around Christmas time. I also bought one large Tombow brush pen. I feel as though the cheaper pens are softer and a bit harder to control than the Tombow, but they do work.

  7. I’m trying to learn how to do this lettering. I have the Tombow brushes and well, let’s just say I have a long way to go! I’d like to learn more about spacing and ‘bouncing’ my letters. do you have a tutorial or worksheet (or formula!) for these?

  8. My handwriting is horrible, but I watch all those videos of people effortlessly writing and creating works of art and I’m jealous. I just bought my first set of Tombows and I’m determined to improve. Thanks again for all your advice.

  9. love the lettering!! Tottally helps my handwriting! Love it!! Thanks so much!!

  10. I would love to try your techniques to improve my lettering. I love journaling and I think using the brush lettering technique would really be the pop I’m looking for to start Bullet Journaling. We have an awesome link up that I believe your tips here would be great for. Come join us at
