I’m sharing with you how to hand letter C in ten lettering styles. This is uppercase C and lowercase C using brush pen lettering. The goal is to help you with your hand lettering alphabet whether you are a hand lettering beginner or a pro. In my own life, I’ve noticed that lettering can give us confidence. However, that confidence won’t come if we believe that there is only one way to letter each letter. You get to create your own lettering style. I hope these 10 ways to hand letter C gives you some lettering inspiration.

Hand Lettering Inspiration
I go hiking every once in a while up a little mountain. I live in a valley so I’m surrounded by mountains and when it’s foggy, that fog just sits like a blanket in the valley. One morning earlier this week, I woke up to very thick fog. I really didn’t want to get up and go exercise. I was telling myself, I get so down when it’s foggy, going outside isn’t going to help. But I went anyway.
As soon as I got to the mountain and started driving up, all of a sudden there was a blue sky! I was so surprised since just before I could barely even see the traffic lights right in front of me. The sun felt so good and it was an incredible view with the fog hugging the mountains below. I’m so glad I didn’t listen to my morning self in the fog who didn’t want to go exercise. We may believe one thing about ourselves or our lettering that isn’t true. We have feelings that are valid, but they aren’t always true. Sometimes we have to take a leap to do things before we understand why.
So what’s your fog lately? You don’t want to letter because you can’t see yourself getting better? You don’t want to post and share your work because you don’t feel good enough? Do you think the letter C is boring? Don’t listen to those thoughts! Take the next leap you’ve been putting off and see where it takes you!
