I was cleaning out a cabinet full of supplies for mixed media projects (finally!) and found this scrap of lettering I had done at least a couple of years ago. I think it was something I was going to use for a round robin journal group I participated in. Anyway, I threw away tons of useless stuff I had collected over the years but thought this was kind of fun to show you.

Script Table Names

I just completed these table name signs for a client. Since the pointed pen can only make a line so thick, after doing the lettering with the gold gouache, I went back in with my pen to make all the thick lines thicker. The style is a variation of copperplate.

Wedding Invitation

This invitation is another pretty one produced by Sugar Paper. The client had requested this style of calligraphy for their names and then later wanted to add a coordinating monogram. The bride, Rebecca, really wanted an interesting ampersand to help make their monogram unique. Using pointed pen, copperplate style, I was able to create something she was happy with. I always find it especially inspiring and exciting to design something totally new and customized for each invitation.
