HAVE YOU EVER TOLD YOURSELF......
"I have been lettering for a while but nothing seems to be working. I can't get clients who are willing to pay me what my work is really worth!"
"Maybe I'm not cut for this. Whatever I do, I can't get people to comment on my lettering posts and my following is not growing at all!"
"I wish I could quit my day job and earn a living doing something I really love to do, but my skills suck and I don't think I can really be better at this."
You, are not alone!
Hand-lettering used to be a skill that is not known by many and have been neglected for a long time. Recently, it became a trend and with its rising popularity, the lettering industry has become a noisy and crowded place.
There's just too many people doing the same thing, too many content and the growing competition makes it more difficult to stand out!
There is good news to it though. Because it has become more popular than ever, the demand for hand-lettered artwork has grown and so many clients want to hire letterers to create artwork for them because it is what their customers want!
But despite the demand, there are still many lettering artists who are struggling!
If you are not seeing results from the many hours you spent practicing, there is probably something wrong with the way you're doing things.
If you are not attracting the right clients and gaining a solid online following, you need to learn how to properly communicate with your audience so that they will come to trust you and your work.
Making a living as an artist is not an impossible dream!
I know this because I am a lettering artist, author and educator who used to be exactly where you are.
The first time I picked up a pencil to letter my first alphabet, it was just meant as a fun escape from the depressing mood I was in back then. Sharing it with the world brought me tremendous joy and fulfillment because people started appreciating my work.
Six months later, I landed my first paid lettering project and I created my first coloring book called "The Little Alphabet Book of Hand-Lettered Type"
This first paid project opened up so many great opportunities for me. And I was not even marketing myself!
It was then that I realized, I must be doing something right to attract this kind of attention so I studied my behavior and paid attention to what strategy works and what did not.
In 2017, I launched my first book, Mastering Hand-Lettering and was able to re-negotiate my initial 4-figure contract into a 5-figure book deal and an increased royalty percentage!
After running my business for more than 4 years, the skills I have learned and acquired have never failed to produce results!
Everyday, it helps me generate a strong and steady source of income to help my husband support our family and live comfortably in an expensive city.
Everyone thought it was impossible. But the truth is:
You don't have to be another starving artist. You can actually succeed and thrive!
I get really sad when I see lettering artists struggle to make ends meet. How others have to lower their rates simply because they don't want to lose clients.
It is simply the lack of fundamental skills that's keeping them from having a successful business. Don't let it become you.
You can make your own success. You can attract clients who are willing to pay you for what your work is really worth and who will respect you as a professional. You can gain a solid online following and build a creative business. I am here to help.

"I never hesitated enrolling in Mye's course. I knew that it will be invaluable for me and it really was! Whenever I work on my lettering, I always refer back to her teachings. My work has become more cohesive and I can already see a distinct style emerging. I have seen growth in my audience and built the confidence to accept a client job which I probably would've thought was too intimidating. Mye's course is definitely worth the investment."
- Gia Graham, Owner/Designer, Shop Betsy White
"Mye's class was just the boost I needed for my lettering! She was straight-forward with her feedback and taught me what to look for when critiquing my work. She definitely pushed me outside of my comfort zone and challenged me in the best way possible. Now I can look at a new letterform and start to break it down to its foundation structure so I can create it myself. I'm feeling more comfortable and confident in my skills as I continue to develop and refine my lettering style. "
