Daily Sketch 103


Here is a sketch with a little bit of architectural lettering, which is the only kind of lettering that I know how to do other than chicken scratch. After scanning the drawing I realized I miss spelled a word. Sheesh, am I dyslexic? Thank goodness for spell check and that I don't have to letter for a living!
Drawn with a 0.9mm mechanical pencil.

Great sketch! And for the spelling mistakes... happens to me aaaall the time, ie. when lettering my nonsense comic or trying to produce beautiful letters in a drawing. I found the reason in the book "drawing on the right side of the brain" in which it says that drawing is a left-brain thing and language/expression a right-hemisphere thing. So when you're drawing (or "drawing letters"), your spelling is expected to suffer.
(Always good to have an excuse!)

E*phi - I totally agree with that idea. That is a good intelligent excuse that I will have to keep in mind!

I've always thought that when I draw, suddenly I can't spell! Now I know why, thanks to E*phi! It's actually embarrassing to let people look through my sketchbook. I'm usually a good speller, then there it is...mistakes everywhere!! Love your sketch though, and you're lettering is really good!

What a great drawing, and the lettering is superb, said the girl who has terrible penmanship. Speling? Who kares? nancy

There is something about doing art that makes the spelling go crazy when we do art. Has happened to me and others. When we draw its one side of the brain. Spelling unfortunately is on the other side and seems to take a vacation often when the art side is working.
