Officially loving Spring.
My kind of stroke gradients. (at Baselime Studio)
Trying something new this weekend. Anyone had Hirsch before?
Ryan at @siennamercato took us up to the see Il Tetto, the soon-to-be rooftop beer garden last night and even opened the retractable glass roof for us. This great ghost sign sits right above you as you eat. (at Sienna Mercato)
Morning essentials lately.
Early (and far too clean) sketches from the @siennamercato project. Loved the top one at the time, but couldn’t imagine it any other way now. #lettering #handlettering #typography #type #branding #sketch #emporio #sienna #pittsburgh #process
Super-quick font-based sketch for a fun project that’ll be revealed fairly soon.
Gearing up to test some things (Hint: my patience, mainly).
Beard back. Hard part. The Other shirt. Good day. #cottongram
Just submitted these two final vector styles to Sullen for the tee design they commissioned me for.
This style of lettering is definitely more challenging to redraw in vector. I tried several approaches to drawing each of the little auxiliary swashes and flourishing to find a shortcut, but just ended up hand-drawing the full outline of each one to get them all right. Pretty intense.
Mad respect for dudes that do this type of work all the time. Found a lot of inspiration from the homies @bjbetts and @bigmeas, so shouts to those dudes.
