This lettering tutorial is about how to hand letter G in ten lettering styles. This is uppercase G and lowercase g 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 G gives you some lettering inspiration.

Free Lettering Practice Sheets
In my Insider Scoop (weekly newsletter) I email a free lettering practice each week. Right now I’m sending my 26 Ways to Letter practice sheets. I hope this gives you some brush lettering inspiration to branch out and create your own style. Along with the free practice sheet, I also give a Scoop of Confidence where I share something about confidence in lettering that has been on my mind for the week.
Hand Lettering Inspiration for Letter G
We have thousands of thoughts going through our head in a single day. Do we listen to every single one? Are they all positive? To be confident, we can’t listen to everything we think to ourselves. How do we know our mind is right about what we can and can’t do? We have to believe the good and question the doubts. Our mind isn’t always right. Every confident person is still going to have doubts, they just choose to believe the good.
I just launched my Hand Lettering for Beginners workshop. I had plenty of doubts. What if I’m not good enough? What if people don’t like it? There are already too many lettering resources out there. But I chose not to listen to any of those because the other part of me tells me that this workshop is going to help people. It’s exactly what I wish I had when I started. Super simple, affordable, workbook included, all the details on how to start and how to practice. Hold on to those thoughts of “hey, I’m really good at what I do” because you are.
How Can I Help You?
If you are feeling any of the following thoughts, here’s how the workshop can help you.
-I don’t have time to learn to hand letter. This class is only about an hour of video instruction with a 30-page workbook you can download and print over and over again for continued practice. If you took this class in one sitting, plan for about two hours to include practice time. Or if you don’t have two hours, you could spend 15 minutes a day for the next week or two. Imagine how it would feel that only after two hours (or two weeks), you know everything you need about basic hand lettering.
-I want to go to an in-person workshop but don’t live near one or they’re always too expensive. This workshop is open to anyone in the world no matter where you live. You get even more instruction than what I give in my in-person workshops. The only thing that’s missing is the pens I give and the candy. However, because this online workshop is even more affordable, you can still get some pens and candy for yourself. Don’t know what pens to get? I tell you the most basic and affordable ones to get.
-I have a hard time with the very basics of lettering. Great! I explain the basics in-depth but in a simplified way so you can understand. Over the time that I’ve spent with students in workshops, I’ve started noticing all of the most common struggles and questions I’m asked. I answer all of them in the workshop.
-I can’t figure out how to get my lettering to look good. Sometimes the best thing we can do when we feel like this is to learn from someone who might have a new perspective to shed light on things we’re struggling with. This workshop is setting you up for the future since it does take time to practice. Your lettering might be improved when you implement some of these basic tricks, and then it’s just about practice.
