In an effort to try new & creative lettering styles, I'm going to add a "weekly lettering" column of different city names revolving around different things; such as, the seasons, holidays, news, or my personal, general interest (or, I'd be happy to consider special requests of your favorite places or hometowns!). It will be a nifty way for me to 1. research a city & use such elements in the lettering style, whether subtle or obvious, & 2. give myself the opportunity to branch out from my traditional & whimsical calligraphy style I comfortably gravitate toward.
Since I'm going to be visiting "Witch City" this weekend to participate in the fun Halloween festivities with my sister, Salem seemed like the perfect city to start (our funny Halloween costumes will be shared this weekend, so keep up with my instagram posts!)! Yes, the lettering style still has some whimsy--perhaps "quirky" is a better term. Quirky, witchy, & with an old charm, just like the old city itself.
