10 July Hand Lettering Styles to Practice

What’s the best part of July? Eating watermelon! I have so many sweet memories of eating watermelon in my backyard – barefoot on the cool grass, spitting seeds across the lawn and trying to hit the fence. I’m channeling all my fruit eating memories for this month’s theme! Let’s practice hand lettering styles as well as enjoy the sweet, juicy fruit of the season!

How Fruit Reminds Us To Appreciate Our Unique Hand Lettering

What’s your favorite fruit? I would guess that some of us have similar favorites, but we all like different fruits. My siblings and I have an ongoing debate of whether cantaloupe or honeydew taste better. I’m in the honeydew camp and really don’t like cantaloupe so I can’t understand why people like cantaloupe better. Just shows that we’re all unique!

One fun thing about fruit is all the different textures and flavors. That’s what makes a fruit salad so exciting. Each different fruit adds to the whole experience. Some fruits taste good dipped in chocolate while others go better with peanut butter, cinnamon, or a little bit of salt. It reminds me of hand lettering, where we learn to work with our unique strengths to produce our own texture and flavor of delicious hand lettering! And with no two hand letterers being exactly alike, we get to be inspired by the different flavors and textures of everyone else. Which allows us to continue exploring our own unique style.
