Since I began sharing more and more of my activity sheets a couple weeks ago, I’ve gotten hundreds of notes from kids and parents all over the world — from every continent, actually, except Antarctica (I guess penguins aren’t into making comics…). Most of these notes are to share finished activities and completed comics, all of which have been consistently blowing me away and making me very, very excited about all the books and graphic novels these kids are going to create someday, and that I’ll get to read!
Some of the notes also contained special requests — such as the one from the girl who said she desperately needed more cat comics to finish (I made another batch of them as quickly as I could!). Many of the notes included questions, too. Several of these questions were about the hand-lettering I do throughout the activity sheets. Kids wanted to know how I did it, and how they can learn to do it, too.
To satisfy these curious minds — and to hopefully get a whole bunch of kids hand-lettering like crazy! — I drew up a couple sheets of tips and techniques.
