Learn something new – Calligraphy?

I’ve seen so many beautiful calligraphic logos recently and the work Bryn Chernoff at Paperfinger is just amazing. Learning to hand-draw letterforms seems to me a great way of learning more about typefaces and logo construction. I think maybe I might give it a try (even if I do have to scan it in and do a lot of “fixing”).

First stop art supply shop to get necessary tools. Hmm no maybe first stop YouTube for some tutorials… Or Pinterest for some inspiration…

Looking forward to a minty green Spring…

I don’t know if its all the rain we’ve had this year, how cold the nights are right now, the fact that my Sweet Peas are making their way up the fence, or just the warmth that’s in sun today but I’m definitely looking forward to Spring.

There is a lot of delicious mint green around so it’s lucky it works so well in so many situations, and with so many colour combinations.

It’s also the colour my new favourite drink tastes like. Hendriks Gin with tonic and cucumber. Hendriks have a very cute website with lots of vintage inspired illustrations and more recipes to enjoy their delicious gin. Roll on Spring…..
