12 ABCs ChallengeLettering

1, 2, 3 4 … twelve abecedarium

It’s a new year and there’s a perfectly awesome excuse to have a nicely planned year-long project. Even though, I am 5 days late.. First, a backstory- i’ll try to keep it short.

For my portfolio in 2014, I developed my first abecedarium and named it Whimsy. It was an incredible experience, and I am ready to do it again. And recently, I started the Handlettered ABCs alphabet challenge and that’s when I got my “lightbulb” moment.

See- that was short ^_^

So my plan is this: 12 months, 12 tools, 12 abecedariums.
