Today is #NationalHandwritingDay! This day was chosen by Writing Instrument Manufacturers Association in 1977 because it is John Hancock's birthday. Hancock is famously remembered for his large and stylish signature on Declaration of Independence and "John Hancock" has become a synonym for "signature" in the U.S. If you'd like to work on your handwriting today, emulate John Hancock's style with MASTERING CALLIGRAPHY by Gaye Godfrey-Nicholls. Or, get creative and use your handwriting to tell a comic book story with THE DC COMICS GUIDE TO COLORING AND LETTERING COMICS by Mark Chiarello (@markchidc) and Todd Klein. #ShelfLife #toddklein #handwriting #lettering #handlettering #crafty
