Over the last few weeks, I've found myself spending a lot less of my free time on the computer and as a result, getting a lot more sketchbook pages done. These are scans of some of last week's pages, along with a few miscellaneous bits at the bottom.
Everything is done in ink directly and is a combination of rough drawings from reference materials (the top row in particular), further doodles based on these, random letter/word sketches, messing around with some wood type, etc.
(Much) bigger version attached.

I have this saved and will be studying it more than you know.
Yeah, what Sean said. So much great stuff in there Claire, especially the L-B-H study.
I have pages like this, except its just filled with emma watson, haha all kidding aside, these are all great, you are so talented!
Love love love it. My sketchbook pages are filled with ambigrams and some lettering. In fact, I bought a sketchbook JUST for lettering and made a promise not to have a single ambigram there. We'll see how long that lasts. ;)
This stuff is eye candy for me. Thank you for sharing it ... made my day :)
Amazing stuff Claire, thanks for sharing. I always love seeing sketches of hand lettering. I also agree with Sean!
I don't believe you did these last week. These must be from 20 years ago when you actually had time to draw.
@Sean McCabe Ha, good to know! Not using an eraser has been tough.. (there is unfortunately also a lack of Microns and precision-inking.)
@Jason Carne Thanks! I liked where that row of 'L's was going, but the less said about some of those 'H's the better.. Haha.
@Neil Tasker Ahaha no surprises there, it's probably your 10th book by now. Thanks for the kind words!
@Nikita Prokhorov Ah great idea, pretty impressive undertaking too! (...I give it a week until an ambigram crops up in the corner of one of the pages).
@Jeff Jenkins Thanks! And no problem of course, glad you like it!
@Nick Slater Haha thanks! Hope things are good with you.
@Bob Ewing /// creative WHAT! Cheers Bob! Yeah rough sketches are so useful to practice, especially based on reference materials.
@Christopher Burton Haha I know, it's amazing the time you can free up when you abandon everything.
This must be some sort of witchcraft..
Haha thanks for sharing Claire. Nothing short of inspiring!
Things are going great! I don't know how I'm going to keep up with you guys. Everyone is killing it lately!
Lovely work. Thanks for sharing!
Nice WIP shot @Claire Coullon !
@Nick Slater Good to hear! You're one to talk though, I get tired just looking at how much work you do. Looking forward to seeing what you're up to next!
@Adam Trageser & @Piccsy Thanks guys, glad you like it!
Wow. Impressive stuff, Claire! Thanks for sharing.
Cheers @Ryan Keairns!
@Simon Ålander Thanks! Had some really good books to work from.
@Claire Coullon You're awesome :)
You are a maniac!
Sorry to double comment, it won't let me edit my last one.
I absolutely love the "Forever Never nope" sketch haha, especially the little "nope" on the side. and the "CC111" is super cool too!
@Jackie Tran & @Jed Bridges Thanks guys! (and Jed, I'll take that as the good kind of maniac).
@Adam Trageser Haha yeah I was just testing out a pen for the "nope" and just sort of ended up writing that word for no reason. The C and 1 are some awesome wood type blocks I got as a gift a few weeks ago, really fun to play with. Thanks a lot for your thoughtful comments!
I really love this creative treasure!!!
Sublime insight to your process. Cheers for sharing it
