An interview with Carla Russo, local artist and owner of The Artful Room.
Earlier this year I was given the opportunity to create my first piece of hand-painted lettering, which now hangs at The Artful Room in Nightcliff, Darwin.
Ever feel completely overwhelmed by life? Recently, I started to think about goals for the year ahead – which is a great exercise, don’t get me wrong.
I’ve just finished four pieces of lettering which are currently being exhibited at our local cafe — my first ever exhibition! The finished pieces are stenciled onto plywood, and involve a lengthy (but satisfying) process.
I enjoy a process video as much as the next person, so I decided to share a timelapse video of my own process – from hand lettering to vector in Adobe Illustrator.
I always find it fascinating to see the process behind a piece of lettering, so I’m going to give you some insight into how I created a hand-lettered tattoo design.
