Welcome to Type by Fire. A blog I am creating consisting of hand drawn typography, just using paper, pencil and pen. Figured why not start a project to help work on a skill that I am, sadly, lacking at and share my work along the way.
As for why, I found an article that explains the why better than I could try and explain, Why I Work with My Hands Still. Even Xanax though I am not working with actual fabric, ribbon etc. you can still feel the paper and the smell/smudging of the ink. Something you cannot get on the computer and personally, there is more value in being able to create something with you hands vs. going click, click, cmd+z, click on a computer.
As for my first post that will be coming very shortly.
