pretty type


.....remember the piece I did for Kiwi Magazine, this is the title page I did to go with it.
I have always loved drawing type by hand so I was only too pleased when I got asked to do this.

It's so so hot here right now, which I love, I just wish it was a little less sticky!
Hope you are all keeping cool or warm, depending on where you are!

This is wonderful. You did a great job making joyful illustrations for something so important. I use to love illustrating type. Typography in art school was one of my favorite classes, and I remember as a teenager my favorite thing was to cover my notebooks with free-hand drawings, (no tracing ever) of all the different band logos off of my albums, as the designs were so wonderful and varied.

As for the weather, after having apparently the coolest July in these parts ever recorded, (It really was wonderful) we are now also in a humid, sticky heat wave :0)

Very nice. I see the connection how cute looking toys could, at times, become hazards.
