View Full Version : Learning to letter

Hi my name is Austin Allen Hamblin and I am an aspiring comic book writer. I was thinking about learning how to letter comics. Would this be a useful trade to learn do you think? I have Adobe Illustrator CS 5.1 on my computer would that be a program I would be able to letter with?

1. We have a complete lettering forum here...so definitely check it out.

2. Lettering is not the sexy career, but it's definitely one of the steadiest.

I am primarily a writer. I started learning to letter in the interests of saving money and found it to be a wonderful art.

Also, what Kep! said. If you get good, there's always need of good letterers. And after you learn a thing or two about it, you will see that there aren't as many good letterers as you'd think..
