Elements of craft: Jim Campbell talks lettering

For those who are interested in the details of the craft, letterer Jim Campbell, has set up Jim Campbell’s Comic Book Lettering Blog, and if the title seems straightforward enough, the URL takes a moment’s thought. (Here’s a hint if you’re still mystified.) This blog is probably more useful to aspiring letterers (and comics creators) than the general reader, as Campbell takes the reader step by step through the creation of different shapes of word balloons and lettering types, usually working with Adobe Illustrator, and presents some useful resources as well. And he answers questions! Campbell also has a five-part tutorial on lettering with Adobe Illustrator that can be downloaded for free. His current gigs include lettering for Classical Comics, Markosia Enterprises, and Zenescope.
