You never know what might up and change your life…

Published about 2 months ago • 3 min read

Sometimes, while I’m typing away in my art studio or casually swapping out camera lenses, I get hit with it – the sudden realization that this is my life.

I get to do this for a living; making art, chasing my passions, and teaching the most incredible community of people on the internet.

What on earth led me here?

There are a few different factors that influenced this weird, colorful career path, but I can point to one in particular that played a big part: lettering.

Surprising, huh? It certainly was for me.

My lettering journey began with a simple desire: injecting bits of creativity into my daily routine by beautifying my bullet journal. Lettering, with its accessibility, beauty, and practicality, seemed like the perfect fit. At that point in my life, I had never gotten any particular hobby or craft to really stick around.

But lettering? Yeah. It stuck.

I was delighted that, for the first time in my life, I actually managed to hold on to a hobby for more than a few months. I loved the process of lettering, even though I wasn’t particularly good at it. It just felt nice.

But here's something I didn't expect: lettering became more than just a hobby.

I had no idea that all that time spent pouring that passion and creativity into my planner would result in more than pretty pages – it would shape me into the person I am today.

Crazy, right? I spent YEARS feeling guilty for stealing bits of time to chase those butterflies. I’m still occasionally hounded by the guilt fairy when I spend a long time on a piece of art. But to my surprise, all those moments of joy didn’t just fill hours – they charted the course of my future.

Investing time in lettering isn't merely about learning a new skill; it's about unlocking parts of yourself you never knew existed. It’s about finding an inner voice that wants to be heard.

You might think, "It's just lettering. How much can it really affect me?"

But trust me, don't sell yourself short. The ripple effects of nurturing your creative passions can be monumental, and it can happen to you.

Imagine where you could be a year from now – selling your lettered art online, perhaps, or being hired for your exquisite script. Imagine what might happen if you did more than dip your toes, but jumped in with both feet.

When was the last time you truly embraced your passions, let your hair down, and explored what you love without reservations? Without guilt?

Lettering was a huge part of my journey, and I know it can be that for you, too.

I wanted to create a resource for you that would provide you with a beacon, a guiding light, so you can navigate the long, often frustrating journey of piecing it all together on your own. I want you to enjoy the benefits of a lettering practice without suffering through all the uncomfortable hiccups I endured on my way here.

That is why I created the Modern Lettering Academy.

It took me 9 painstaking years to amass the knowledge I now hold. But with the Academy, I'm handing it to you on a silver platter, condensing what I’ve learned into a curriculum designed to add rocket fuel to your progress.

Building the Modern Lettering Academy was a massive undertaking. Every detail was painstakingly considered, shaped with one goal in mind: to offer you an unparalleled learning experience. This wasn't just about putting together a product.

It’s about trying to make this life-changing skill as easy and accessible to anyone who has the courage to start.

And let me tell you, the final Academy is 🔥🔥🔥.

Lettering snuck up on me, reshaping my life in ways I could never have anticipated. And now, through the Modern Lettering Academy, I hope to offer you the same experience for you: a chance to grow, to explore, and ultimately, to discover parts of yourself you’ve yet to meet.

The path is right there in front of you.

Do you ever sit down to paint and feel immense pressure to make this piece different? Make it mean something? Make it special somehow? I recently discovered a funny little mindset that steered my artistic growth – and hindered it in major ways. I realized that when I sat down to create, I felt like I needed to come up with everything right then and there. The concept. The colors. The composition. Every single thing had to be fresh right now if I wanted to make a nice painting. But the other...

One of the most common struggles I hear from people in this community is a lack of consistency. People have a tough time making time for their art and letting creativity be a regular part of their lives. It’s hard, when you have a life full of work, family, friends, domestic chores, and so much more, to squeeze in those habits and routines that mean so much. It’s interesting to see how art, expression, and creativity are the first to get tossed overboard when life gets hectic. And it always...
