Archives For hand lettering

Hello! Hello! Is this thing on? It’s been awhile since I posted here, sorry, but things have been busy as of late. Most of my free time is being spent creating goods for the local annual craft show, Craft Lake City.  This will be the first time I’m selling goods at a show, luckily I am sharing a booth with my uber talented friend & my design soul mate, Clairce Gifford of Nifty Swank. She’s a semi-seasoned craft show vendor.  This card is currently available in my Big Cartel shop!

Since Mother’s Day is coming up, I decided to hand letter a card for my mom & make it available for purchase. I know the phrase is a little untraditional, but what can I say… my mom IS a badass & I know a few expecting mothers who also fall into the category of badassery!

Pick yourself up a card here or an 8×10 print here

Everything about 2012’s ‘The Haunted Man, the third release from English singer-songwriter Natasha Kahn (AKA Bat For Lashes) gorgeous. The album ended up being one of my top five favorite releases of last year. On ‘The Haunted Man‘, Kahn lets her guard down, explores lush soundscapes and throws herself into every word of the evocative moving lyrics, her vocals are softer showing someone who is deeply hurt.

To me, the track “Laura” is extremely powerful with it’s simpleness that features only a piano and delicate horns floating in the distance. I find Kahn’s voice is so powerful here & I get emotional with every listen, it’s simple the finest song she’s written. One line from the song strikes me every time… “You’re the train that crashes my heart.”

Recently, I was contacted by Lance Saunders of S&S Presents, to do some poster work. If you frequent Kilby Court or Urban Lounge, chances are you have been to a S&S event. Lance along with Will Sartain, are the two heads behind S&S AND they happen to own both venues. Yeah, they’re kind of a big deal around the SLC area. The moment I was asked to design a poster, I jumped at the opportunity. You can purchase it poster here.

Awhile back, Lauren Hom of the Daily Dishonesty blog, contacted me to do a guest post & I jumped on the opportunity. Lauren, is the NYC graphic designer behind, Daily Dishonesty, which is a blog displaying hand lettered posters that document the little lies she tells herself on a regular basis. Once a week she features a guest post. After some thought, I sent Lauren a few little lies I tell myself & alas we went with the “Just 10 more minutes”. We are all guilty of this, right? Last week my contribution went up. I also have a print version available in my shop!
