Jessica Hische Love

Holy smokes! I love fanciful drop caps. This one’s by Jessica Hische, a very inspiring lady of the typographic persuasion. I’m sure this paragraph would look better if I had more to say, thus properly filling up the space around and below the lovely drop cap, but I must move on. Sigh. I suppose we’ll never know. Unless… I type this last sentence. Yes! Now, doesn’t that look just lovely.

Wonderful logo.

“Whatever you do when you’re procrastinating… that’s probably what you should be doing for the rest of your life.” Check out this very short interview of Jessica on Humble Pied.

More type goodness to come!

Beer With Branson

Sir Richard Branson is awesome. Some might even go so far as to say he is, “the man.”

My good friend, Justin “Bugsy” Sailor,  is determined to meet Mr. Branson, with a little help from his friends. (In addition to pulling sick tricks on a snowboard, Bugsy created and completed the obviously infamous, Hometown Invasion Tour.)

With the power of the internet, Bugsy hopes to meet Sir Richard Branson for a brew. I drew the illustrations for the project’s website, Beer With Branson.

“Graphic USA” to include my chapter on Detroit

I’ve been asked by Cicada Books to write and illustrate the Detroit section for the upcoming book: Graphic America. The recently released Graphic Europe is a beautiful guide, designed by Joana Neimeyer, specializing in places that designers and artists might prefer to visit while traveling. Keep your eyes peeled for the release of Graphic America next year and my chapter: Angela Duncan’s Detroit.

Below are spreads from Graphic Europe.
