October 2017 Lettering Challenges

Hey hey everyone! We've taken a little bit of a break here at The Inky blog, but now we're BACK and ready to share calligraphy goodness with you all. We've got oodles of fun things planned, so be sure to follow along.

First up, let's talk Instagram. You're on it, right? RIGHT?! Okay, if you aren't, go do that right now. I'll wait. (Makes sandwich. Drinks coffee. Binge watches Crazy Ex-Girlfriend season 1.) Done? Great! Now make sure you're following @MNYKcalligraphy. Again, I'll wait. (Eats sandwich. More coffee. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend season 2.)

Okay, so Instagram is great for calligraphy-lovers for lots of reasons - one of which being monthly lettering challenges. Here's how they work. At the beginning of the month, calligraphy folks will share a list of phrases - one for each day of the month. Every day, you are invited to script up this phrase and share with the hashtag they provide. It's SUPER fun, and even if you don't want to do your own scripting, I recommend following the hashtags to see what other letterers are up to. 

Here are a few of my favorites for October 2017.
