This past Saturday I had the pleasure of joining a bunch of local hand-letterers at Lettering and Lattes, hosted by Creative Market and Toms Roasting Co, to kick off SXSW. It was my first event as a letterer, and I couldn't have had a better time. A group of letterers were brought together by Creative Market to hang out on a beautiful Saturday morning, drink coffee, letter, and talk with each other and the attendees. I was happy to spend time with a few letterers I was already close friends with (Becky Murphy, Angela Duncan, Zachary Horst, Ryan Hamrick, and Lin Zagorski), as well as get to know others, like Sean McCabe.
We all had a blast trying each others markers, pens, and different lettering styles. B took these photos, but joined the letterers in having some fun too. I'm so happy to be in this community and learn from each other, and I cannot wait until we all get together again.
