It’s Day 15 and we’re halfway through this 30-day hand lettering blog post series which also means we’re halfway to the launch of Learn Lettering 2.0 on July 27th, 2015!

You’ve read all the posts up to this point. You’re starting to feel like this is something you can actually do. You’ve been giving it some serious thought these past couple weeks and have decided you’re going to set aside time to show up every day and practice.

But maybe you’re wondering if it will all pan out. Let’s say you do decide do practice hand lettering and you do gradually improve and build up your skill. Then what?

What if the clients don’t come? What if no one cares? What if nobody follows you? What if you don’t get a ton of people asking to hire you? What if you don’t become famous?

Ok, kidding about the famous part. But seriously…

Those of you who heard my recent talk on The Overlap Technique know that I like to do things a bit differently. I began challenging the status quo vocationally, but beyond that I began to question common practices in all facets of what I do. I starting asking the “Why?” question instead of taking things at face value and doing things everyone did “because that’s what you do.”
