Newspaper Blackout Poems

Just discovered the artist Austin Kleon who takes newspaper articles and blacks out everything except a select few words that create a poem. An interesting way of taking something so plain and everyday and making it into a work of art!

Lettering inspiration

I've been looking at a lot of typography online lately, trying to get inspired and motivated to start a personal project. I read an article about creating something interesting every day, and would really like to try and make the time to do it myself. I've been following the Daily Drop Cap by Jessica Hische, who has some really incredible work that makes me want to experiment more with lettering, and here's a poster I just stumbled upon that takes letters from well-known logos to create a really interesting alphabet poster:

Now I just need to find the time to start something of my own!

winter in the city

You'd think that in a city that's constantly filled with lights and noise, adding a little more wouldn't make a difference, but I just love how the city becomes a different place around Christmas with all the light shows and Christmas music blanketing the streets. Here are a few shots from the other night when I went to go see the tree in Rockefellar Center...I especially love the giant ornament sculptures =)

Connie's Bakery

Finally got a chance to go see my Connie's billboards at the Mt. Kisco train station. They're different from my original designs that used icing for the lettering, but I think they turned out well and I'm so happy that they even included my name on the billboard!
