You can do SO much better than this!! 

You can do SO much better than this!! 

I've got a confession to make: I'm terrified of - and terrible at - typography!! 

I spend a lot of time saying things like "everyone can draw - it's just fear that holds us back!" at my workshops, but am clearly a hypocrit when it comes to my own work! 

I'm in total awe of my friend Judy, who bangs out amazing new typography every single day!  Her work is all hand-drawn and so packed with colour and positive vibes - you can't help but smile every time! 

I've also seen some superb typography skills on show at my events, including these gorgeous pieces from Sketchy Bitches regulars Mickey and Anne! 

So this month, inspired by these aforementioned awesome artists, I'm planning to face my fears and practise my typography - and I thought I'd invite you to join me! 

The challenge  

Create a tropical typographic promo image for The Social Sketchup Summer Special on 24th  July! We'll be drawing everything from pineapples and plants, to flamingos and FABS - so grab yourself a 'sketch on the beach' and get channelling those colours! 

Share your work with my on Instagram to be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets to the aforementioned Sketchup and one of my screenprinted t-shirts! 

NB: The competition closes on 30th June and I'll announce the winner on 1st July. YAY!
