Lettering Through Jonah
Topic: Bible Journaling

I really love finding new fonts, studying them to identify the features that make them unique and figuring out how to reproduce them in hand-lettering. Then I like finding just the right place to use it in my bible.

Here is another lesson that I produced to do just that:

JONAH: Day #1 – Watery – Introduction

It may not be obvious but all three of these lines are the SAME script! We are working on a 3-unit grid with the x-height at exactly the center.

First, write the word standing upright in its natural stance. Then on another set of guides, draw some slanted lines at an extreme angle. These are at 45 degrees. Use these slanted guides to get the slant of the script consistent when writing out the focus word: Jonah.

 


 

 

 

JONAH: Day #2 – Watery – Alphabet Uppers

First, write out the upright version of the upper-case letters to learn the letter formation. Note all the little curls on these! Then, make your slanted guidelines and rewrite the alphabet with the letters slanted with the guides.

 


 

 

 

JONAH: Day #3 – Watery – Alphabet Lowers

Today’s lesson is the same as yesterday’s except with the lower-case. The curls are much more prominent on the lower-case alphabet.

Draw the guides and the upright letters. Then draw the slant guides and use them to tilt your script alphabet.

 


 

 

 

JONAH: Day #4 – Watery – Stretched Script

Now that we have learned the letter formations we are going to write with the script in its slanted form.

Begin each line with a curved leader and continue the line between words. Finish with a curved tail.

Make the word transitions stretched out and smooth.

 


 

 

 

JONAH: Day #5 – Watery – Bible Page

We get the big finish as we use this watery script in our bibles. Use the slanted, stretched out script to write out a scripture. You’ll note that some letters are unrecognizable in the connected state (upper-case I). If you wish, try making another form of the letter you like better.

Use a range of light-to-dark teal and blue pencils to make solid coloring directly under the words, fading as you go down. The tops of the words are not colored, nor are the insides of loops.

 


Amazing how this looks like waves in the water!
