Be brave enough to be awful at something first

Where are all the awful attempts? I see a bunch of lettering masterworks on Instagram that look fluid and amazing but you never see the 900 attempts that were made before that one 30 sec post.

So here I am sucking at drawing some letters with a pencil in my sketchbook. Be brave enough to be awful at something first so you can be humble when you’re amazing doing something cool. This was fun so I’ll make more funny videos of me sucking at hand lettering soon.

Some of my best graphic design is made when I’m having fun. There’s danger in taking yourself too seriously so don’t do it!

This is design, if you’re not having fun you’re doing it wrong.
