As a continuation to my Brush Lettering Alphabet series, in this video, we will learn how to letter lowercase b using brush lettering.
In this video, I’m using the Tombow Fudenosuke hard pen. It’s one of my favorite pens. The worksheet I am using in this video is from my Brush Strokes Workbook.

So don’t be afraid to make mistakes as you learn the lowercase “b” in brush lettering with me.
Tips for Brush Lettering
- Focus on breathing and going slow. The slower you go, the better you will be able to focus on the transition between the thick and thin strokes of your letter.
- One of the differences between calligraphy and handwriting is that in calligraphy you pick up your pen between each stroke.
- Don’t worry about getting it perfect. You will see progress when you practice consistently even if for just a few minutes per day.
- There’s no right or wrong when using modern calligraphy and brush lettering. You have the freedom to create your own style.
