Quick Tip to Draw Straight Lines & Avoid Shaky Hand Lettering

A surprising number of people write to say they have trouble drawing smooth lines. How do you get nice, smooth, even lines?

Well first, what a lot of people don’t know is I spend quite a long time on a lettering piece. I take about 3–4 hours on average for a medium-sized piece.

It’s not that I couldn’t get it done faster, it’s that you really need to be meticulous and intentional about your lines. This is especially the case when you are inking.

Even once you are very practiced, there’s still a limit to how fast you can draw while maintaining smooth lines.
