Love of Lettering

It's that time of year again! Fall classes at the best shop in Boulder (Two Hands Paperie) have begun! On November 7, from 10:30 - 4:30 I will be teaching Love of Lettering. Hand lettering is a great joy of mine, and gets incorporated into my drawings, paintings, and mixed media journals. In this class we will create a sampler of the many different lettering styles I use, as well as a chalkboard inspired page that is beyond fun. Join me as I share my tips & tricks, favorite quotes, and passion for lettering. This class will infuse your work in a variety of new ways!

Creative Lettering Workshop

There are so many great new books on the market lately that cover one of my favorite topics, lettering. I am pleased to share a new book by Lesley Riley, Creative Lettering Workshop that also includes an interview and piece of artwork by yours truly. Most books that focus on lettering tend to veer a bit more towards calligraphy or hand lettering, whereas this book is all about combining quotes with mixed media, perfect for the visual journal! Grab a copy and check out some of the fantastic artists whose work greatly inspire me, such as Jennifer Joanou and Pam Garrison.

More fangirl funtimes

A little Game of Thrones fangirling. Don't get me started on these two. Working on a much larger sketch from the show. If you need more now, check out Scott C. Campbell's GOT Great Showdowns. He typically illustrates showdowns from films only, but gave us all the gift of a GOT series. Love him! I obsess over his work. Do you hear me Scott, let hang out and sketch and watch movies. Stay tuned...

Fangirl Funtimes

Having fun with little watercolor sketches for Lila Rogers MATS class on the subject of being a digital nomad. Google it and tell me if it doesn't just sound like a dream job!

Just finished reading (ahem, obsessing) over the book Fangirl. Sweet story of a freshman in college, falling in love, and writing Harry Potter type fan-fiction. The book within a book of Fangirl is coming out as it's own fantasy book this fall. Hurrah for Rainbow Rowell! Loving all the fan art (Simini Blocker I'm lookin at you!) for her books so much, that I had to dabble with my own! More to come.
