The #letteritaugust challenge was started by Instagram artist and calligrapher Jenny Highsmith (@jennyhighsmith)! It’s a daily creative challenge, which encourages you to follow along with each day’s prompt and create your own piece.
Here is the list of prompts that Jenny thought up for this month!
I started a few days late, so I had to catch up. At first, it was difficult dragging myself out of bed early… calligraphy is not the easiest thing to do first thing in the morning, when your eyes, brain, and fingers are still half asleep!
Eventually, it became part of my routine — either early in the morning, or in the evening before going to bed. Thinking creatively on a daily basis has definitely energized me, and I’m glad I followed through and completed the challenge.
Now that it’s ended, I thought I’d round up some of my favorite personal pieces!
For more lettering inspiration, check out the #letteritaugust hashtag on Instagram! There are some really great works in there, from aspiring calligraphers and lettering artists all over the world. It was wonderful to follow along with such great company.
I’ll be pretty busy this month, but try my best to follow along with the next challenge!
