Like Ol' Dirty Bastard, I, too, like it raw ... lettering, that is. Among other things (get your minds out the gutter people), I am completely enamored by the raw quality of hand-lettering. While I can appreciate the cleanliness and precision of digitalized typography - nothing can compare to the rawness of organic handwriting. Every line and every stroke tells you a little something about the artist behind the lettering. Shaky lines reveal a bit of insecurity that I think every artist can relate to when drawing. And strong, bold lines display a sense of confidence that I hope to develop more and more along my journey through hand-lettering.
In the meantime, enjoy the music video that inspired the "ooh baby, I like it raw" hand-lettered quote, below:
