07. C.J. Amaya ? Lettering & Illustration

C.J. is one of my lettering heroes ? and I am so thrilled to have him on the show. Please join in on the wonderful conversation where C.J. shares his experience of working both as a freelance Lettering Artist as well as working at an agency.

We talk about having a passion for type (totally nerding out over beziérs and smooth letters, LOL), the impact of imposter syndrome and the importance of having cool teachers. We also chat about multiple buckets, sleep and lessons from grandpa and grandma.

Of course, I don’t want to give too much away but C.J. seriously drops so many gems. Please have a listen and go show C.J. some ?. You can find him on Instagram and cjamaya.com.

The episode is also available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and Google Podcasts.
