I’ve been forcing myself to work more in quick bursts on limited time to really challenge my skills. I’ve either been a noodler on the most mundane aspect or spend too little time on something that involves more focus when it comes to illustration. I’ve come to love some of the 30-40 minute pieces, and I plan on sharing more of them here.
As always, you can check out some of my recent posts on Instagram.
I’m hooked. I thought I’d use it for my hand-lettering, but fate intervened. My 2-year-old is obsessed with all things dinosaurs and zoo animals, which became an inspiration for quick doodles to get a good laugh out of her. I reignited an old flame of my past self, and I’ve been ‘doodling’ every chance I get.
I’ve been working on getting back into hand lettering again. It’s been a while…I’m rusty, and this is not like riding a bike! It took me a while to get back into a groove to create some forms I felt comfortable putting out into the world again. I’ve been taking inspiration from phrases I tend to often say, or current events. Before you ask, YES I do often say, “Calm your tits” to my team. It’s sort of become our catch phrase. Sometimes we even say CYT for more politically correct situations. Ever so professional.
If you’re feeling it, you can support my bad habit of lettering inappropriate things here.
