I’ve put together a collection of 12 of my favorite hand letterers. I’ve been obsessed with hand lettering now for over two years. I hoard pens and markers like nobody’s business, and I’ve started collecting Procreate brushes since getting my iPad Pro.
But all those pens and brushes are useless if you don’t feel inspired to use them. These hand letterers will get those creative juices flowing, guaranteed!
Follow if you like: brush lettering, watercolors, foiling. The variety of mediums on her feed keeps it super interesting and gets those creative juices flowing.
Follow if you like: hand lettering, doodles, puns, mom life. Also, her Procreate brush is my go to, and it’s FREE. Go get it, you’ll thank me later.
Becca has a great program for beginners called Show Me Your Drills. It’s free to join and she usually has special offers on the course workbooks.
She is also one of the masterminds behind Panic Free Pricing. It’s also free to join (yay!) and has ah-mazing tips for how to price your work. The e-book is a must if you are starting to turn your lettering hobby into a business.
Hand letterer extraordinaire! This guy is a pro at composition and has just released some super awesome, time saving grids you can use to give yourself a head start. If you’re like me, composition is one of the hardest parts of a new project and causes blank page syndrome. For that reason these grids are a lifesaver.
If you love adding floral and botanical embellishments to your lettering, Peggy is your girl. Not only is her lettering on point, but she’s release not one but TWO fantastic books giving you step by step instructions on how to draw a vast array of botanicals and succulents. I’m such a fan that I of course got a signed copy. 😉
Dawn is a master hand letterer and her blog is one of the first ones I went to for resources when I was just starting out. She has a bunch of free worksheets you can download. And if you join her email list you get surprise goodies too!

Tired of seeing “You Got This” and other motivational quotes in your feed? Then follow Lauren. She has a flair for taking traditional sayings and turning them on their head to make you look twice. And isn’t that what you want for your own feed?
Stand out from the crowd with her #HOMwork challenge. It’s free and will exercise those creative muscles.

A modern calligraphy expert. If you’re interested in pointed pen work, follow this girl. Her work is exquisite and her geometric water colors are mesmerizing.
I love her brush lettering and she has her own line of brush pens and workbooks. I have the Multicolor Brush Pens and they are very similar to the Tombow Fudenosuke hard tip. Excellent for beginners.
Amanda has courses available for every skill level. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced letterer, there is always more to learn. She often partners up with other famous letterers to create unique courses.
I bought the Letter Like A Legend course but have yet to complete it. They are a bit pricey, but the amount of information and resources that come along with it justify the price.
I started following her because I loved her lettering style but her artwork is amazing too! This girl can draw anything.
Last but certainly not least is iPad Lettering. There is no one better to teach you how to do lettering on the iPad. In fact, Karin and Amanda Arneill released an iPad Bootcamp that looks amazing.
Be sure to visit her website to shop for freebies and some unique and fun Procreate brushes.
