Typism Book 2: 'Out of the Woods' piece to be featured

In an incredibly exciting start to the new year, I found out yesterday that one of my handlettering pieces has been selected to feature in the Typism Book 2, and will be published in April 2015. Having only started lettering in June last year, it's amazing to have come so far in such a short time. Typism received over 900 submissions for this year's book, and to have one of my pieces chosen for one of only 193 spots is very humbling.

To follow my 365 day challenge where I post a handlettered city name every day please visit www.instagram.com/tiiametzke.

New handlettering Instagram challenge launched.

Today, I've begun a 365 day handlettering challenge. Earlier this year I was lucky enough to be given an introduction to handlettering, brushpens, and calligraphy by the fabulously talented Gemma O'Brien, which really fueled my desire to create my own lettering work. It's difficult to always find the time to practice though, so ideally this challenge will motivate me to do a little bit of work every day. I've chosen city names as my theme - Sydney being the day one word, of course! You'll have to check out the instagram page for the rest, though.

To follow the progress, find me on instagram @tiiametzke
