It is estimated that about 10% of the population is left-handed. In this post, I share tips for left handed brush lettering.
I am not left handed myself, but since I teach brush lettering, I wanted to do research and help my left handed students succeed!
Typically, as a left handed writer, you’ll be one of the following:
- An overwriter (curlers)
- A side-writer (horizontal)
- An underwriter (non-curlers)
From the research I did, it seems that when using a brush pen, left-handed lettering artists tend to be side-writers or underwriters. But experiment and find what works best for you.
