A few months into being at moo.com now, so when an invitation commission comes along, I automatically think: "that would look great on a postcard."
Hope City Hereford, who I have had great pleasure working on a number of commissions for, have built a new premises and wanted to shout about their opening ceremony...
Other ideas included:
It was lovely to hear from a happy Etsy buyer who bought one of my hand carved bamboo pens...
Thanks for my bamboo pen, I love it! It's so nice to use something so natural to draw with! Gave you a mention on my lettering blog.
Check her out! Below shows the "first attempt" that she posted - most impressive! If you'd like a pen of your own, you can order through the shop here, Etsy or Folksy. You might even pick up a bargain on eBay if you look hard enough!
Polished off a sign writing commission yesterday.
I've done plenty of these before, but always on actual signs, so if they went wrong I could just hide them. Here the only solutions to messing up were either a huge can of Magnolia, or burning the shop down, depending on how melodramatic I was feeling... Thankfully neither was necessary as I was quite pleased how the poem came out for The Banyan Tree, Brackley.
I ache today though!
