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.

In exactly 12 hours, this book along with 3 others will be available on #letteringlibrary for you. If you’re signed up for the newsletter you already know what the other 3 are, if not, you should definitely sign up to be in the know and the first to know about everything that is going on at Lettering Library. You can sign up on the right hand column of almost every page on the website at http://www.letteringlibrary.com OR follow the link in my profile.

The Speedball Text Books are one of the most abundantly known in the sign-book universe and for good reason. Penned by Mr. Ross F. George, these books are a veritable treasure trove of information and inspiration. Be on the lookout for it at noon tomorrow!

I recently commissioned Dave Gunning at Dad’s Paper Signs to come up with 4 big alphabet sheets for me for practice purposes and to double as wall art when I’m not using them. He did an excellent job - I’ll be posting the others in the coming days.

Have you checked out September’s #letteringlibrary collection? Among the 4 books released this month is “Album Nouveaux - Monogrammes en Relief” by M. Rawski from 1911. A half English, half Russian embossed monogram book that is true oddity in the #letteringbooks world. 

Check it out at the link in my profile or head directly to:

Only 10 more days until the next 4 books are available!

Little late night lettering experiment. I really like the “B” here. A few letters feel out of place but it’s not bad for a quick 20 minute sketch. Stylized, fancier iterations of Roman lettering from the Victorian era was always something I’ve found captivating, so this is just an attempt at that look.

This is one for the graveyard that never made it past this rough sketch. I despise off balance letters in monograms like F, L, or P - they always kill the symmetry and flow. I’m glad my decision to pursue a single letter “A” monogram ended up being approved instead.

Here’s a fun piece I did last month for the good people at @roupala that just launched today. Each shirt funds the purchase of 435 square feet of rainforest for consercation purposes. Check out their page and website for more info and pick up a shirt or two!

Also, @briansteely did a few great pieces for them, check out his work if you haven’t before.

Inks for the @alloutfoul piece I posted a few days ago. I ended up removing the flourishong in the background and some other minor elements in the final.

New-ish to #letteringlibrary - H. Cole Supply Catlog from 1927. How many of you would be interested in something like this? It doesn’t contain much lettering at all, but it has hundreds of tools of the trade and it’s a pretty cool look back and the past era of sign writing and its related fields.

Here’s a new one I wrapped up this week for All Out Foul. We were originally going to do a three letter monogram (AOF), but I suggested a more elaborate singular “A” instead which I ended up liking a lot more.
