Description: Over the past few months, the Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted our lives and routines in unexpected ways, forcing most of us to stay indoors in community quarantine. With that extra time on his hands, Nico decided to start a new project: #BibleLetteringCollab.
At the start of the pandemic, he received many chain story posts, in particular ones about “artists supporting artists.” Many would share and tag their fellow artists on these posts, but Nico wanted to do more. He had an idea to call for collaborations, so that artists would be able to better support each other by working together and featuring each other’s work in an art piece instead of merely mentioning their IG handles.
Since he is also passionate about sharing God’s truth, Nico chose Bible verses that remind us of God’s protection and love, especially amidst the current situation we find ourselves in. You can join him, too, either by using the templates below (available in digital or printable form) or by starting your own collaboration.
It’s interesting to see how two different styles combine to form one piece of lettering work! Try it out for yourself, and let’s spend this time sharing encouraging truths while supporting each other!
Here’s how you can join in:
- Pick a verse from these 4 options to encourage your followers with.
- Download either the PSD or printable template to work off.
- Complete the verse by lettering on the right half side.
- Post your finished artwork on social media. (Please tag us @nic_the_ & @ymi_today when you share your #BibleLetteringCollab works! We’d love to see what you’ll come up with.)
