It makes me so happy to see someone who is 14 and already has this much enthusiasm for lettering. I especially like that he is using the no-slant style as I find that to be better for beginners. His style is more casual than what you would want if you want to learn a traditional italic.

There are many other videos on YouTube to look at before you decide which style you want to try first.

Lloyd Reynolds videos are a good example of more traditional italics.

Joan Fink has some nice videos using markers, if you want to give those a try.

Paul Antonio - good info, does not include full alphabet

and a person named John Neal, who is not the John Neal Bookseller,
has good tips for italic monoline penmanship

I'm sure there are lots more - so hopefully others will add to this thread.

Myles, nice job bro 8) (I've decided to start saying bro in a sad attempt to make me seem younger).
Jean, those Lloyd Reynolds videos seem fantastic.. even though the intro credits are seizure inducing...
Now I want to learn Italics... ugh... got. to. stay. focused.
