Time to get our hands dirty again! For this month, we’re making our way back through the construction to Barkley to hang out with Casey Ligon! She’s going to go through some basic fundamentals of hand-lettering with us, show it in action, and then we’re all going to get messy and explore letter shapes and words to make some awesome hand lettering pieces!

 

caseyCasey Ligon is a lettering artist, muralist, chalk art aficionado, and part time Instagram-er originally from Florida, currently living and working in Kansas City. She received her BFA in Advertising Design from Ringling College of Art + Design, with honors, and has a minor in Business of Art and Design. She interned with Hallmark Cards, Inc. and then picked up a full time job in their Marketing Design Studio. Casey learned traditional calligraphy and hand lettering techniques from some of the greatest (and nicest) artists and was eventually able to provide lettering for a number of fonts used in seasonal marketing campaigns. These days, she makes all kinds of crazy/crafty/hand-lettered stuff for Barkley. You can follow her work on Instagram.
