First Thoughts

I like the idea of the highlighter behind the type… or is that watercolor?

mexico, land of handlettering

grocery store signs

I used to wish I could have the job of hand lettering signs at the grocery store. Til I found out that's a thankless job. And a dying art.

I have loads and loads of doodles mostly of letters. I generally doodle all the time. I write words that I hear in meetings or on TV. I need to do something with them. And I'm hoping this blog might give them purpose and help me think of ways to use them.
