I can’t remember if I’ve posted a quote by Mary Oliver before, but she is my absolute favorite poet. I don’t know a time in recent years that her words haven’t spoken directly to my experience, and she expresses feelings in such simple, elegant ways that I could never duplicate. I woke up in such a good mood this morning, the sun shining, the breeze brushing lightly over my face, and this popped right into my head. Hello, sun in my face!

I have been on a creative k i c k  lately, so hopefully I’ll be able to post some of the lettering I’ve been working on this week or next. I really need to buy myself Illustrator one of these days, staying in the lab a half mile from my house until 1am is getting a little (cough LOT) old. But I should be finishing up a few projects this weekend, so get excited. If anyone needs any branding/calligraphy/illustration work done, let me know. I’m looking to expand my portfolio and will be taking on some free projects if you’re interested. A link to my email is over there ----->

Have a beautiful Tuesday! Don’t take any wooden nickels.


  1. Nice! This is so inspiring and sweet :) I want to wake up to these words every morning, haha.

    Would love to see some of your lettering...!

    1. Thanks, Amber! Check in next Monday and your wish will be granted.
