Bible Lettering in Mathew
Topic: Bible Journaling

This year of bible journaling Cover to Cover is almost over - just the four gospels left to do with lettering lessons and drawing lessons. I just share the lettering lessons here though.

So, for the book of Matthew:

MATTHEW: Day #1 – Circlets – Introduction

This alphabet is drawn upon circles – single line for the lower-case letters and stacked two high for the upper-case letters. Therefore, the first step in writing with this font is always to pencil a series of perfectly round circles.

You can see in the first line that the letters M and W use double-wide as well as double-high circle sets. In all letters, the lines swing around on the curves and then take straight lines.

For these samples, I’ve left the pencil marks in place for your reference. You will erase your own circle guides once you’ve inked the letters.


 

 

MATTHEW: Day #2 – Circlets – Alphabet

Here are the full alphabets for both upper- and lower-case letters. In the first version all of the guide circles are still in place. Following that, the pencil marks have been erased so you have a clean alphabet.



 

 

MATTHEW: Day #3 – Circlets – Word Play

Today we’re going to explore some options for using the Circlet Font. First: experiment with making some banners to contain your words. Second: try out overlapping your letters. This is a great way to fit a longer word into a smaller space. Third: drop the upper-case down (or raise the lower-case) so the center line of both is aligned.


 

 

MATTHEW: Day #4 – Circlets – Scripture Writing

For this piece where I went to scripture writing, I introduced banners in a couple of places and also worked on centering the lines of text. I used a bit of script for emphasis and then carried that over to the scripture reference.


 

 

MATTHEW: Day #5 – Circlets – Bible Page

Because I had so little text in this scripture, I did not employ any of the special features we explored this week.

I did, however, illustrate the page with some Fish from the Drawing Room tutorial.



If this alphabet looks familiar it is probably because it is a repeat from 2017. It is also a wholly original alphabet that I designed.
