Graffiti Lettering Part II


What you'll need:


  • Paper

  • Pencil

  • Markers

Graffiti and street art can be found all over Indianapolis. You can often find a lot of stylized lettering with eye-popping colors. We're about to walk you step-by-step through a couple of examples of word art that you can try at home!

Let's try another style! This time, try to pick a word or words that have some "holes" in it. For example, the letters "o" and "p" both have lines that form a closed "hole".

Start the same way we did with the first style, outlining your letters and erasing the middle lines.

Let's turn the hole in the "o" into an open mouth!

We can also turn the holes from the "e" and "a" into eyes!

That "e" kind of looks like it has a mouth. Let's give it some teeth!

Next, let's give that "y" something fun to do. 

We can add a curly line to the end of the "h" to balance things out.

Now it's time to outline!

Make your letters look shiny by adding highlights!

Draw some circles on one side of each letter and color in around them.

All done!
