When writing in a modern calligraphy style, there are some words that are troublesome. One of the words I always get asked about is the word ‘Happy.’

We definitely write the word ‘happy’ a lot for different phrases and quotes, such as “Happy Birthday.” The main reason this word is tricky is because there are 3 ovals and 3 descender loops written consecutively.

In my newest YouTube video tutorial, I address the issue of ‘bouncing’ the letters in this word.  Watch the video demo and remember to subscribe to my Channel so you don’t miss future tutorials!

I’m developing a new online course about modern calligraphy or ‘bouncy’ brush lettering and would love your feedback. Which other words do you struggle with writing? Let me know in the comments!
