The Brief: This piece was inspired by a prompt by a personal mantra and reconditioning of the famous “Practice Makes Perfect” phrase.

Role: Graphic designer and illustrator responsible for concept, design, and implementation of all lettering and illustration.

Tools Used: Pen and ink, paper, Adobe Illustrator.


A refrain I’m always telling myself, the more you practice the better you get (even if you’ll never be perfect, because no one is!). This hand-drawn lettering piece started as a pencil sketch, was refined in ink on paper, then was scanned in and vectorized. In Adobe Illustrator, I refined the shapes and letters and added color. Now I have a print I can hang up to remind myself: there’s always room for improvement, so keep on practicing!
