How did you get into lettering?
My fascination with letters began about twelve years ago. It started with my friends and I painting graffiti murals and spending all our free time hanging out and sketching together. Later I went on to study graphic design and my interested turned to typography; I began to learn the technical side of letterforms and how to use type to convey different feelings in different contexts. Straight out of school I decided to try and make lettering work as a full time job and thankfully I found artists in the UK and the US who shared their knowledge and encouraged me to keep going. I've been working with brushes and enamels for about a year and I've been super lucky to learn sign painting techniques from James Cooper in Bristol and Derek McDonald in San Francisco.
