It's time to say "goodbye" to 2013 and "aloha" to a brand new year with a fresh, blank canvas ahead. I like to think of the turn of year as a great time to revisit goals and set a vision for the things I want to accomplish in the 12 months to come. Art grew to be a big part of my life in 2013, and I'm excited to see how my style and technique evolve in 2014. Tomorrow I'll tell you about how I'm approaching my art resolutions, but today I wanted to throw a little handlettering inspiration your way.
Every day, we are being told what to do, either indirectly or more overtly. Design can be one of the most effective ways to sell an idea, brand or product.
Chicago's weather has taken a drastic turn for the chilly. (It was a system-shocking 15 degrees when I took the dog out the other morning.) And such wintry weather really divides the masses into two schools of thought — first, the bury-your-head-in-a-scarf-and-hibernate-for-the-next-four-months city dwellers; and then the much smaller batch of make-the-best-of-it-while-attempting-to-venture-outside-occasionally believers.
