‘S’ wan
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.

You might recall seeing some of the sketches I did on my stories for this project last month. Swipe across to see the sketch that was chosen for the final 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
Visit the link in my bio to see the magazine, including some more typography inside the editorial section. A special thank you to art director @natalie.gagnon 🙏🏽
