This sign duo is something I created for a recent wedding. What a challenge it was to write large, yet still to keep a “pointed pen” look.
Awhile back on the Telegraph.co.uk, there was an article entitled “Why preserve Van Gogh’s palette?” which I found fascinating … and you may as well.
Perhaps you will remember my post from a short time ago about A Place To Bark … well, the art has been compiled into a book and is currently up for auction on eBay. Won’t you take a moment to check it out and, if you are able, place a generous bid on it? Not only will 100% of the proceeds will go to Bernie and the animals at A Place To Bark, but you will receive a one-of-a-kind book filled with original art. The countdown is quickly coming to an end so do check it out soon….
Although I have always loved Weathergrams, this was the first time I created any myself. They were developed in the mid-1920s by Lloyd Reynolds, who taught writing and calligraphy at Reed College near Portland, and were meant to be written on brown paper (mine came via Trader Joe’s shopping bags) and hung in a tree, to be exposed to the rain and elements, and to gently weather. These eventually went to France, and so I don’t exactly know what has happened to them, but I had a chance to snap some shots of them before they made their journey.
