Hand lettering

I finally added a new lettering section to my web portfolio. I have always loved to play with letters. I took calligraphy years ago which helped me immeasurably in learning typography and page design, as well as the foundations of good letterforms. But my strength has always been informal letters that integrate illustration, not formal scripts.

Most of my lettering work thus far has been informal, personal stuff — invitations and notes and labels for my family and friends. I’m more and more drawn to the work of lettering, lately, so I figured it was time to put it out there. If only to motivate myself to make more and better samples to the page!
