Well, gee, Happy New Year! I've been busy relaxing from a great Christmas holiday for the studio--so many fun custom orders this year! I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas holiday with friends & family. Taking the tree down was my least favorite part.
To start off the new year, I wanted to share some new items listed in the shop. There are a lot of Valentine's gift wrap, mini Valentine's, & gift tags, so if you are into the lovey dovey holiday, hop on over to the shop to check them out!
However, I wanted to share with you a new Map series I'm excited about: Calligraphy 'Hood Maps. I'm going to research & dive into the neighborhoods within cities (or small towns) & simply draw the streets within. I wanted a reason to celebrate & get to know all of the great small towns & unique neighborhoods in our country, & this seemed like a fun & simple way to try & do that! Each map is drawn using pencil, & the titles are written in calligraphy using liquid graphite, & edited a bit in Photoshop since it can get messy, sometimes!
I don't know about you, but I love the feeling of supporting small & local, & this series brings it to heart, so I'm excited to add to the collection! Please feel welcome to comment or message me with any local towns or neighborhoods I should keep in mind! & if you'd like a custom neighborhood/town map, you can get details here!
Enjoy, & Happy New Year!
