In C Magazine, my calligraphic monogram was featured on the "What's Hot" page! I designed and lettered it, and it was beautifully letterpressed by Sugar Paper.

Store Front Calligraphy
I did calligraphy for a mailer for Sugar Paper and they decided to blow it up to use for their Holiday window. It's always fun to see my work used for a variety of applications. The original size of the letters was about 1/4 inch in height.

Calligraphy in Art
Two samples of my first time painting and doing calligraphy on canvas. These are both going to be sent to other artists as part of an art exchange. I also created a mailing tag for the outside of the package and you can see that on my other blog here. I had a great time creating these!

Seating Envelope and Embossed insert
This is an example of the other portion of the job shown below. I think the embossed monogram on the insert card is really a nice touch.

Copperplate Table Names
These were just done for a client whose wedding is this weekend. It's always a bit challenging to do copperplate in a larger size like this (lower case letters about 5/8" high), since the thick lines require pressure on the nib to allow more ink to flow. I think they came out fairly well and I hope she likes them!
