IF YOU KNOW, YOU KNOW // I built this with all reclaimed and restored wood, 18x18 inch. The next one will be bigger and far more complex, maybe 2x4 ft big. Who needs it?! 🌹 #heavyhandmade
#HOMwork week 1 with @homsweethom was to create a piece centered around my name surrounded by things that I love, so here it is... A week later. 😅 I was floored by seeing so many great pieces that I was apprehensive to start but I'm glad I did! - - - I'm currently listening to Ologies podcast on sports psychology and this piece really helped me reflect on what my fears and insecurities were and how irrational some of them were, lol. Check it out if you get a chance! - - - #posca#handlettering#letteringcommunity#lettering#communityovercompetition
It's #nationalhandwritingday 😍 Here are some samples of my writing style. I remember when I was 12, I would practice writing my cursive handwriting over and over again in spiral notebooks so mine would be just as pretty as my mom's ❤😂 Keep the #art alive!
In honor of #nationalhandwritingday // "pare down to the essence but don't remove the poetry" - Leonard Koren // I've been working on embracing a natural script style--#wabisabi you might call it. My inner perfectionist has a hard time embracing imperfections but the in perfect is what makes calligraphy so special in my opinion. It's so fun to look back and see how my style has morphed throughout the 4 years I've been at this. You can easily see it changing in these little Instagram squares. But don't go back too far in my feed! Embarrassing! 🙈
Stand Strong: Face whatever comes your way. Have courage, and know that you are resilient. Bark is thik, but it does not become so overnight. A seedling may be ripped from the ground easily, but with each passing year, it will grow stronger, its trunk become less shaken, its green skin turning into brown armor. There will be 1000 storms to test your strength. They are what make you strong, sturdy, resilient. But remember: even the darkest, longest and most bitter storm must eventually make way for the sun.
