Modern Placecards

I hand lettered these oversized black cards in gold ink. The style is a more modern take on pointed pen calligraphy. The cards should look nice tucked into napkins at each guest's place setting.

Ritz-Carlton Holiday Card

Tova Glenn, of Brighten My Day in Atlanta, designed this holiday card for the Ritz-Carlton in Georgia. I had the pleasure of working with her to incorporate my calligraphy. This unique, circular card is deep eggplant with copper foil stamped lettering and a beveled copper edge.

Pointed Pen Menu

I received a request to handletter 15 menus for a client in San Francisco. Navy ink written with pointed pen.

Brush Lettering

I recently had the opportunity to visit a plantation while I was on vacation in New Orleans. Whitney plantation is an historic landmark built by African Slaves. The Plantation pays homage to all the slaves that were there and elsewhere in the U.S.South. This photo is of an original slave quarter from the 1700's. and the amazing clay sculpture was done by Woodrow Nash. Nash did many sculptures of the slave children on the plantation.

Brush Lettering

Inspired by Lin Manuel's speech. Super speedy brush lettering done in 10 minutes.
