Asyera Guempel Lettering
My name is Asyera Guempel, people call me Abby.
I am currently an art director for a paper crafting/scrapbooking company based in Utah.
I’m originally from Indonesia and currently living in Dallas. I have a shiba inu puppy named Vanilla.
I love lettering, designing, drawing, scuba diving, playing music, composing songs, cooking, making stop motion videos, home decorating, and papercutting,
I used to work as an interior architect and a musician but, graphic desigining and illustrating have been my passion since I was 4. It feels super awesome to finally be able to pursue what I’ve been passionate about.
Knowing Tombow products from fellow letterers, I had been looking for a perfect “soulmate” pen to explore my creative mind and I finally found it!
I love these products and I will definitely recommend them to all creative folks around the world!
A few tips for letterer newbies :
– Own a couple of sketchbooks. I usually use 9in x 12in sketchbooks – the versatile surface
– Start with pencil if you are not sure yet! if you know what you are doing, let’s get inking with Tombow!
– Make mistakes! nobody sees it! Only you…and that can be fixed!
– Sometimes I have to use lots and lots of papers to get the perfect drawing. That’s okay! that’s what your sketchbook is for!
– Be sensitive. Listen and watch your surroundings, inspirations can come from everywhere.
– I like to read non-fiction books, they have a bunch of anonymous quotes from anonymous people that I use for my lettering inspiration
– Don’t get intimidated by other people’s works. If they can do it, so can you!
– Go crazy with different mediums. Tombow has many many pens!!! Let’s try them all!
– Do not be shy to publish and cast your works
– Ask for feedback and keep practicing
