Lettering class

One of my very good friends, Lisa Engelbrecht, lettering artist extraordinaire, (and authored an awesome book on modern calligraphy and hand lettering), is coming to Seattle for thanksgiving weekend, so we decided to set up a fun & easy but super cool lettering workshop at the annex.  We can only take 15 students and already have 5 signed up, so email me asap if you want to come.  more class info here.

I was cruising around the internet and found this fantastic piece designed by calamity kim (using a rubber stamp designed by me.  SO cool...makes me want to design rubber stamps again...

new day

 so, as you can see, I'm changing up my journaling right now.  and it's been so much fun.  I've been gesso-ing on pages that were created using scraps of paper and then using pen and then my lightest copic markers.  After doing 4 pages I was frustrated by the pen bleeding into the copic markers when tracy suggested I use his multiliners from copic.  They are "copic-proof" so now I'm even more excited to play around with the new way of working.
