Such an honour to be invited by the people at @36daysoftype to create my favourite alphabet #36days_S
A few weeks ago I attended the ‘Swan Lake’ ballet and was hence inspired to create this letter. Check out my stories to see some behind the scenes of this piece.

A short process video creating one of my pieces for @papyrus greeting cards.
I’m still trying to get the lighting and video quality right, this was shot in natural light over 5 days.
Background score is the 🎶 ‘Lion theme’ by @dustinohalloran 🎶which kept me company everyday.

Amongst clouds, birds, daisies and sunshine, this is how an ideal summer should be. View my stories to see a bit of the process and the drawings that didn’t make it. In case you missed it, see it in profile highlight under ‘S’ummer 🌞

Revisiting a simple old piece today (which wasn’t used by the client ) It was such fun creating this whimsical lettering.

My cover art created for @vanmag_com Vancouver magazine is published in Canada 🇨🇦 I used real Canadian money 💴 to make these letters!! (Just kidding 😜)

Swipe to see the details of the artwork up close. I was hesitant to cut up and layer the currency notes even though they weren’t actual Canadian money to make the lettering look more 3D
