San Fran signage

I love me some classic Americana typography, so all the signage around SF was a treat to photograph.

And it’s even prettier all lit up in neons by night.

There’s nothing like starting a new project with a pad and pen (yes, that might be a new print design in progress)!

Carter’s steam fair

Carter's steam fair

I do look forward to when Carter’s Steam Fair rolls into town. A travelling funfair firmly inspired by Victorian sideshows and vintage attractions, it’s always a a feast for the eyes — but I’m far too scared to go on any of the rickety rides! I just amuse myself playing on the arcade machines, watching Josh in the shooting galley, and taking photos of all the dreamy retro signage. (Sorry for the slightly over-wrought ~vintage~ Photoshop grading effects, I couldn’t help myself.)

Keith Morris calligraphy

Beautiful classic calligraphy skills from Australian Keith Morris. I especially love seeing the pencil sketches of works in progress.
