J.J. Abrams filter on my morning walk to get coffee before the show. Sporting my @blackburnsupply Citgo Sign pin. Much nostalgia for this sign, I was told my freshman year of college, if I ever get lost, just look for the sign, it'll get you "home". πŸ”ΊπŸ’›πŸ˜Ž|| #boston #citgosign #blackburnsupply #solarflare #sunflare #thatscarftho #latergram

I got in late, but not tooooo late last night. Fatty-not-so-Fat still wanted to squeeze in his Caturday snuggles. (I took the photo and fell asleep.) 😻😴|| #caturday #catson #catsofinstagram #greycat #graycat #cat

Enjoying the last bits of the beautiful morning, before I go inside for the rest of the day.

Days 54:Yesterday was a long day, 12 hours, including a short show at the end of that shift. Thesis related phone meeting afterwards. Came home & continued to knock stuff off my to do list. Need to finish emails, but opted for embroidery. Some quick, blue French knots. 😴Took the photo & then fell asleep.

Throwback Thursday to an woodtype alphabet print I was setting a few years ago. Honestly, I printed the first color, and never went back to it. πŸ˜‘|| #printingpressseries #letterpress #metaltype #bowandarrowpress #printmaking #printing #typesetting #design #typefaces #typefaces #typography #vandercook #woodtype #tbt #throwbackthursday

Days 53: Getting things done slowly & feeling less overwhelmed *knocks on wood*. The purple woven wheel stitch makes my weird-ass, green, double triangle look more like a leaf. ✨TA-DA! A flower.✨ It's actually a simple stitch and looks cool.

No printing tonight, but I set another one of many projects on my list. Decided to go for a combo of woodtype, Futura Light, & Empire. Plus an ornament or two to balance things out. || #typeface #typefaces #letterpress #wip #futuralight #woodtype #woodtypewednesday #printmaking #printingpressseries #empire #metaltype #printing #typesetting #sanserif #typeface #typefaces #bowandarrowpress #printmaking #printing #design #typography #metaltype #metalornament
