Lettering. The overlooked art of making sure nobody notices.

Face it, lettering is NOT as easy as you think it is. 

Just one little thing off, one balloon out of place, and it won't matter if you're Da Vinci, it'll throw the reader out of your story... hard.

So how to do it so no one notices?

Nate Piekos has figured it out and made tutorials.  Go find them at Blambot.com.  He's been putting the best lettering advice in the industry on his site for free for the better part of a decade, and it's a damn shame when a good comic is ruined 'cause the creator didn't know any better.  Now you have no excuse.  :D

Happy comic-ing!

No way to like a post, but I'll definitely be taking a look!

New to digital lettering myself, and contemplated wordless comics before.

Good to know, lettering and it's placement  is often overlooked, gonna check Blambot.com out. Richard Friend has a Youtube site and he goes into lettering in his reviews. Thanks for posting.
