Hand-Lettered Friday

I’ve been practicing my hand-lettering more lately, traditionally and with my drawing tablet, so I thought it would be fun to share a hand-lettered quote this fine Friday to inspire you.

Do what you fear

“Do what you fear and the fear disappears.” – David Schwartz

There are many things I don’t do as an artist because of fear, such as more hand-lettering, using my drawing tablet, showing my work, putting myself out there in the marketplace, and marketing myself and my work. So this print has a little bit of all that!

I experimented with a few fonts, which I actually liked better, but the point of this exercise was to try more hand-lettering, get used to and learn to like my hand-lettering. The background print is a sneak-peak at something else I’m working on these days 😉

Hope you enjoy a great weekend!

Try something beyond quote poster

Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

This quote is a great reminder that you’ll never grow if you don’t try new things. It’s not easy learning new things, believe me. It takes dedication, determination, commitment, and time, but it’s worth the blood, sweat, and tears. Don’t settle for good enough. Push yourself to be better.

Hope you are inspired by something or someone this week. Enjoy your weekend!

Shadows Sunshine quote poster

Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in one’s own sunshine.
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

This quote is a great reminder that your own negativity can get in the way of being a positive person. Be optimistic and positive – good things will come your way. Don’t get in your own way!

Hope you are inspired by something or someone this week. Enjoy your weekend!

Independence quote poster

I did a search for quotes about independence since today is Independence Day in the US. I chose this quote not just for the independence day reference but because it’s a great reminder that you become a stronger person with ambition and self-determination, two qualities that are especially important when you have your own business.

Hope you are inspired by something or someone this week. Enjoy your weekend!

The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.
