#LetteringChallenge: Metallic Week


Lettering challenges were created to discipline artists and help them practice their craft regularly. A challenge runs in a span of one month, often with a theme or a list of things to scribble which you have to complete until the last word/quote.

As for me, I decided to challenge myself and developed my own version of the typical brush lettering challenge. I call it simply #LetteringChallenge with a twist. Why? Because I want to focus on the theme and I will do it per week.

I’d like to believe that my previous post where I scribbled 13 lyrics/lines from Taylor Swift’s songs was already the beginning of it. That is why I wanted to continue doing this for the next weeks/months/years to come.

Maybe I can do one or two challenges per month, which means I will be working on it for two weeks/one week. That way, I wouldn’t juggle between working at night and spending the day crafting designs and brush lettering–well, I have to admit that the latter was what I loved the most.

It’s just that I still doubt myself and I’m not the type who could constantly do one thing without any interruption so a month of lettering could be difficult for me. Perhaps I have a short attention span? Or that I am easily distracted? Doesn’t mean I am not a disciplined person, though. 😛

So, here we go!

My first #LetteringChallenge featuring modern calligraphy using in metallic pens.


Yas. I used the DONG-A My Metal 0.7 gel pens, which I would be proud to say was very affordable. I bought a set of seven pens for only P200.

And that black calligraphy pad was from IFEX–another local brand for school supplies.

Now, let’s see how these pens performed on paper. 😉
