E komo mai...WELCOME! ๐Ÿงก
I remember being in elementary school & before our Kupuna entered our classroom, we would all say โ€œE Komo Mai Kupuna Vaught, E Komo Maiโ€ #EKomoMai
Welcoming her in to teach us Hawaiian Studies. ๐Ÿงก
These will be new signs listed in my @etsy shop real soon. ๐Ÿ˜
So many new products going thru my head that I canโ€™t wait to offer! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ
This is an unfinished mock-up, Iโ€™m still deciding on final color for the listing. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ #WoodenSigns #CustomSigns #handlettering #handlettered #Lettering #Letters #Letterers #Script #ModernCalligraphy #Calligraphy #50Words #Ligature #GoodType #LigatureCollective #HandmadeFont #HappinessThroughHandlettering #MikalaDesigns

So Iโ€™ve not been lettering as much on paper lately. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ
I got a new toy Iโ€™m trying to figure out AND Iโ€™ve discovered #Embroidery thanks to @hopebroidery @the_lemonade_store @leilanixjude and I AM OBSESSED ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ I want to #EmbroiderALLTheThings
Iโ€™m no PRO at this but what did I have to lose? Nothing.
Also, Iโ€™m kinda fucking proud of them all. ๐Ÿ˜
I wasnโ€™t going to post pics of them (because of imperfections & of asshats whoโ€™d comment shitty shit) but my boo Chelle @the_lemonade_store said โ€œPOST THEMโ€...so here they are!
Moral of this ramble is:
POST YOUR ART OKURRRRRRRRR ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ’‹

*DM if youโ€™d like to purchase one ๐Ÿ˜‰*

When you spend all your time #Embroidering & stop lettering...it shows. ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿคช๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ
Must remember to practice every day or THIS is the result.
Contrary to what some may believe, I AM A HUMAN BEING behind this Instagram account...not a bot or computer program that makes no mistakes, wiggles, squiggles & the like. ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ–ค
@allikdesign hit the nail on the head when she said if it looks perfect it doesnโ€™t look handmade...or something close to that. ๐Ÿฅฐ

Iโ€™m exhausted this morning but needed to pick up a pen.
As usual, Iโ€™m in my car lettering because...well because itโ€™s peaceful ๐Ÿ˜‚
So many things that arenโ€™t โ€œperfectโ€ (lighting, angle, backdrop, etc) about this & yet, I love it because itโ€™s real and raw and I created it.
There are so many beautiful perfectly manicured & set up posts to see here already (Iโ€™d love to be able to post those more regularly but yeah Iโ€™m ME ๐Ÿ˜‚) so hereโ€™s my imperfect, raw, unmanicured post...that is still beautiful. ๐Ÿงก
Happy Wednesday to you COURAGEOUS humans who let your art out just as it is...just because you want to share it with the world! ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ˜˜

the gradual development of something, especially from a simple to a more complex form.
Iโ€™d like to think that the evolution of my lettering is in a continuous cycle of growth. Always learning new things from all the amazing artists I have the privilege of observing. I am no expert, nor do I pretend to be...but I have come a long way from where I started. ๐Ÿงก Isnโ€™t that what itโ€™s about? A journey where you continue to learn and grow and absorb the beauty all around you? Late nights lead to a lot of pencil scribbles & rambling obviously. ๐Ÿฅด๐Ÿ˜˜
