Handlettering For 100 Days

katrina sophia handlettering 100 day project

When I first heard about Elle Luna‘s The 100 Day Project, I wanted to join but I couldn’t come up what I was going to do. I wanted this new project to be something focussed and as I finally decided to do handlettering I joined in two days later. Better late than never, right?!

I originally wanted to do the usual process – handletter to perfection, scan and edit every time but I realised that with my year of creative habits project and work commitments I wouldn’t have time so I just look up for a lovely quote, write it in my sketchbook pages for couple of times and take photo (hence these slightly weird shadows and inconsistent grey backgrounds, which I kinda like anyway!).

Naturally, I am loving it! This project gives me a chance to really practise with handlettering as well as experiment with different pens and styles.

I am also pleased that through this project, I got commissioned by lovely Rebecca Desnos to handletter titles for her new e-book about natural dyeing, which I got really interested in from following her seriously beautiful Instagram account and want to give it a whirl. If you are curious too, do sign up to her newsletter to get a discount code when her e-book gets released very soon! Stay tuned for more detailed post about this exciting collaboration.

Follow my 100 day project over at Instagram by using this hashtag #100daysofkshandlettering and see the rest of my handlettering with #kshandlettering.

Are you doing #THE100DAYPROJECT too? I’d love to see what you have done so far!

    Oh cool! I’d never heard of this project until now! I’ve missed the beginning of it but I love the idea of it! Your handlettering is just lovely!

    I am crazy impressed by your level of creativity this year – your handwriting (and choice of quotes) are so lovely :)

    This is awesome!! Love your quotes and hand lettering. I’ve been always wanting to try hand lettering but my penmanship has always been terrible. Would it be too much of a stretch for this gal to try? ;)

      Thank you, Jane! You should just try. I actually prefer a natural side of handlettering than perfect calligraphy style (which is also pretty though). :)

    Great project, I have joined in the for the first time this year. I love the quotes you have chosen. I personally prefer the raw un-edited versions & your lettering is great. I’m doing 100 days of things in a jar which is a bit weird but there we go!
