arts & letters
Whee! On the heels of my trip to Minnesota came a surprise in the mailbox - a copy of Somerset Studio! At the beginning of the year, I hand lettered the alphabet and did an interview for the "Lively Art of Lettering" column, and had nearly forgotten about it. When prodded for a title, I named it "Arts and Letters" because, well, I didn't know what else to call it. I usually call my pieces like I see them, but "Alphabet" seemed a bit too smart-assey. This is my third lucky break in a Stampington publication and I've smacked myself silly every time the mag showed up. This exemplar in particular was a real thrill to do, because I always go directly for that column when I pick up a copy of Somerset Studio. So it's a little freaky to see myself there this time. But a very happy kind of freaky. Thank you, Stampington, from every letter in my alphabet!
Still riding high on the fumes of my northern voyage - see Rachel, Kolleen, Carissa, Susie, Jen, Liv and Lori for more pics! Thanks girls for an unforgettable time!
