Lettering can express emotion and set tone.
Fonts, size, weight, randomness, evenness (or not), letting space, fluctuations, script vs type-setting.

Tricks for lettering that I find interesting…
Type out your fonts and text and trace it with the lightbox to get the best of both worlds – consistency and handwriting.

Create fonts for characters
Create your own font and use it.
Move the fonts with the music, rythm, or wind.
Use fonts to point to the next panel.
Use micron pens for lettering

The enemies of lettering
OMG! I have broken every rule of lettering so far.
