The Heart to Heart calendar has lived every year by the kitchen sink where we daily do our dishes. So last night after having worked on this all day, I tucked a draft into an area above the sink and let my eyes half see it while I washed dirty plates and glasses. That’s when I decided to space out the word “decisions” more, to be a more definite line marking the arrival of the sum below it. I can see a few more places this quote could have used a bit more room, but I had run out of time, and was happy enough with the result. Calligraphers can be a little OCD, have you noticed?
I’ve been busy fulfilling projects in the studio and on the home front. It is always good to get back to the basics: black ink on white paper, design and layout, carefully making my letters, choosing to mimic a numerical sum in feel, using letters instead of numbers.
