Stop Practicing the Slow Way

When I first got into hand lettering, there wasn’t very much out there in terms of hand lettering classes. I had to search all over the place and piece together information just to educate myself.

I didn’t know that I was practicing the slow way. I didn’t even know there was a right kind of practice to get better faster.

I don’t want it to be like that for you. That’s why I created Learn Lettering to show you exactly how to practice, step-by-step so you don’t have to guess.

I’ve seen huge results in my audience growth from applying Sean’s techniques and teachings.
My Instagram account has grown from a modest 150 followers to over 3,000 in just the first year.
That number has more than doubled in just the past 3 months
(Update: Now over 16,000 followers.)

But here’s why Learn Lettering is unique: I don’t merely impart tips and tricks—I show you how to make a living at lettering as a career.

Bridging the Gap Between Art & Business

You are an artist. You have a creative spirit and a desire to create beautiful things. You make compelling art and you love captivating people with your work and sharing a message.

  • You know that your art has the power to sell, but you just don’t know where to start.
  • You didn’t go to school for business and what business you’ve picked up isn’t really relevant to the online world.

The Learn Lettering Master Class bridges the gap between lettering techniques and real-world application.

You’ll learn the practical business knowledge you need to succeed as an artist. You’ll get access to modules on finding clients that pay well, learning to communicate with clients to prevent problems, design contracts and licensing (with templates), selling physical products, pricing on value, and teaching hand lettering.

It’s rare for artists to be business-savvy and most business people aren’t artistically creative. Learn Lettering is a rare hybrid of art and business training that will help make you well-rounded and ready to attract the right kind of clients and price on value with confidence.

I appreciated the very solid and practical exercises that the class walks you through.
No quick fixes, just expert advice that has to be followed up by practice.
