When you want to aquire a new lettering technique, you don’t pay attention to what you letter. It’s somehow peculiar, that I come up with the word “Karate” a lot. It’s because I like K’s and A’s I guess.
I’ve never done any karate or actually never seen anyone doing it, but to me it seems that people mastering this sport are often referred to as owning a superpower. I like that. I like superpowers. So I just keep on lettering “karate” until I call my superpower Lettering.
