I am a 24 year old hand-lettering aficionado and antiquarian junk collector extraordinaire from Neptune City, New Jersey. I have an extensive music collection and an ever growing library of sign-painting and lettering books. I’m also a connoisseur of screen-printed posters and an avid animal lover and travel enthusiast.

Hey followers, I have two brand new invites to give out for Dribbble. All you have to do to be entered to snag one is make a post about Lettering Library on either Instagram, Facebook or Twitter and email me your portfolio at work@jasoncarne.com - simple as that! Over the past few years I’ve received nearly 80% of my work from Dribbble alone - trust me, you want to be on this site.

I’ll be choosing whom I consider to be the best two candidates at the end of the week.

Here is a link to a folder of images you can use for your post on Lettering Library:

Bonus points if you design something custom for #letteringlibrary 

Let the games begin!

Just wrapped up a tattoo design for a client - I almost never do them because I feel weird providing another artist something for them to trace, but this one felt like it would my kind of thing so I took it on. I love doing family crest/coat of arms styled stuff, it’s really fun working with something old and historic and breathing new life into it.

Five foot long railroad spikes from a long gone 150 plus year old rail line in near Palmerton, PA. My buddy @nightcast22 climbed down a part of a mountain to get these off of a collpased section of the railroad ties. Cool pieces of local history! Also featured is some coal (anthracite?) that used to be carried along this line. And on the left…who knows…dino turd?

Another piece I regrettably couldn’t bring home. The Allentown Paper Show had entire books filled without soul-crushingly beautiful work.

The unofficial award for coolest poster of the Allentown Paper Show yesterday went to this big guy - a 24x36-ish 1942 wartime propaganda poster. There’s something undeniably cool about orange and black together. At nearly $500 I couldn’t grab it though, maybe next time!

Picked up an insanely beautiful trade card today at the Allentown Paper and Book Show today. Super deep embossing, beautiful gold work and a killer layout and design.

First night with the new fire pit, one of the best things money can buy for your backyard.
#drawlloween kicks off tonight. 31 days of Halloween themed fun in October - it’s mostly for illustrators, but I figured I’d play along with some lettering each day. Day 1 - Spider.

I’m going to limit myself to less than an hour per drawing to make this into a speed/quick thinking/on the spot creativity challenge for myself.
