Hand Lettering Tutorial | Crayola Marker Brush Calligraphy 🖌

Brush lettering is so fun, but I remember when I started taking an interest in doing it I had to buy a load of brushes from the dark corners of the internet. So in this video I show you how you can use just a Crayola Marker Pen to create some amazing brush calligraphy.

Great Graphic Design Resources!

    Damn this shit is kind of mesmerising to watch! I wondered why it was so popular on YouTube, but it looks like (as a hobby) it would keep you occupied for a good chunk of time haha…

    Just started as a tattoo apprentice, really struggle with but have a huge passion and love for all things calligraphy. This has blown my mind.. I've been searching for videos, books and weather to buy ink and pens but I'm definitely going to buy some crayola tomorrow. Please keep making these videos.. thank you so much mate!

    have you tried doing this with watercolor?

    Is calligraphy harder for left handed people? I haven't tried it yet, but it seems like it would be more difficult since cursive leans to the right and flows that direction

    I will never look at these markers as baby art supplies anymore. I love this video!!!

    Does crayola supertips is the same like crayola broad marker?

    God, I got chills everytime you used the marker, can't handle the sound

    How much are those markers?

    seems like you are also starting in one direction (top to bottom) instead of going back up again from bottom-to-top on the strokes of the letters.

    My 7 year old found this video and is now only looking at videos about handlettering. Since you used regular Crayola markers he felt he could maybe do it too 🙂

    Are there any books you'd recommend for lettering specifically? not Typography but on understanding ways to construct and draw letter.

    I love your videos specially those regarding logo design, really helpful and informative, you're not just making a show with your brilliant abilities. I hope one day I will be a great designer like you, stay blessed

    Will, I love your videos!
    I'd like to suggest a topic: how long should it take to present the first version of a logo to a client. I know it depends on many variables, but I've been seeing many agencies stating that they deliver the first version within 2 days and to me it seen like a kind of "fast food" logo design process. Am I wrong?

    Hey Will! Love the videos! Thanks for sharing your techniques. Quick question; what is your camera set up here for recording? Interested thanks

    Love the video man. I always end up going back to the good old Crayola markers I find they have just the right feel. Cheers!

    Absolutely love your videos! I am learning so much, so thank you for that! Never thought much about a Crayola marker. Gotta try this one out!

    "kind of good hand control…its not the best". Thats what i call bullcrap, lol.

    Awesome video as always Will! I appreciate the effort you put into making these videos. You don't see many great hand lettering videos like this. I would love to see more! You're a really big inspiration, man. When I saw this I immediately thought of Colin Tierney. He has made in-depth tutorials for everyone to learn on his website. I highly recommend you guys check him out if you love hand lettering & calligraphy! 🙂

    Nice video, but I (and maybe others) am/are wondering how to accomplish David Milans style (assuming you know him). His style is very quick and it gives the ends of each stroke a cool flourish that's difficult to get when going slow.

    I've tried his style myself but i just couldn't figure out how he remains so controlled.
    Do you have any ideas or tips?

    Would love to get a response, and keep making videos! I enjoy watching them.

    Thanks in advance.

    Is it just me or is this oddly satisfying.

  32. Aniroc192 Avatar

    You make it look so easy~ Practice makes perfect, though. How long did you practice with a Crayola marker till you felt comfortable with it/with what you were producing?

  33. spllitz Avatar

    mine turned out like shit
