It's time to say "goodbye" to 2013 and "aloha" to a brand new year with a fresh, blank canvas ahead. I like to think of the turn of year as a great time to revisit goals and set a vision for the things I want to accomplish in the 12 months to come. Art grew to be a big part of my life in 2013, and I'm excited to see how my style and technique evolve in 2014. Tomorrow I'll tell you about how I'm approaching my art resolutions, but today I wanted to throw a little handlettering inspiration your way.

We love that unique and artistic lettering is popping up everywhere: from restaurant chalkboards to clever greeting cards. Lettering with a pointed brush is one of our favorite techniques. Try these tips for ideas for your next piece!
