I’m sharing with you how to hand letter D in ten lettering styles. This is uppercase D and lowercase D 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 D gives you some lettering inspiration.

Hand Lettering Inspiration
Are you afraid to share your lettering because you are worried about what people will think about it? I was thinking today about how scary it is to even just start lettering on a blank page. What if you make mistakes or don’t know what you’re doing? Or what if you want to share it on social media but people don’t like it? What if you want to sell it but nobody buys it? These are fears and things I think about every once in a while. It still scares me to put something new out there. It’s scary to put up my sign for my hand lettering workshops, to put a new product in my shop, to start a new lettering project because I don’t know how it will turn out. This is a lot of fear!
Lettering makes me feel a sense of accomplishment. The more we letter, the more we want to letter. With fears, the more you overcome fears, the more fears you can overcome. It is exhausting to always be afraid that you’re going to fail. But the more we fail, the more we realize that it’s okay, and that’s actually how we learn.
So today, let’s embrace those things we are afraid of. Let’s stop worrying about what other people are going to think. Instead, let’s make mistakes on that blank page. Let’s find the joy and sense of accomplishment in lettering and let that push us through our other fears.You are doing amazing right now because you’re YOU. You don’t have to be afraid.
