VEDA Day 17: How to Design and Set Up a Hand Lettered Quote

I’ve watched a TON of videos lately which focus on the art of hand lettering. They are amazing videos from very talented people who have such beautiful penmanship. But none of them are focusing on how to actually set up and design a quote on paper. How do they block it out? How do they center their writing and know which words to make fancy and which ones to make plain??

So I decided to make a video to show you the basics. Bear in mind, I don’t actually have the basics down myself, but I’m hopeful it will help you think how to set up so you can focus on making your hand lettering more beautiful.
