The goal of this session is to create a final lettering piece completely by hand using analog materials.

I'm very excited to share my new book, Illustration Workshop. I wrote this book for aspiring illustrators, students, or anyone who loves to draw, this workbook helps to build up drawing skills, confidence, and create an attention-grabbing portfolio.
Cold brew coffee design
I had the pleasure to design the label for Square One Coffee's new Cold Brew label. Each year they work with an artist to create a label design. It was fun to work on and the coffee is so good. Limited supply only, so grab one while they last!
I collaborated with Coca-Cola for their #refreshthefeed campaign. They asked for a hand lettered phrase that was both uplifting and holiday themed. At the time I was looking forward to sharing the holidays with my loved ones more than receiving gifts so I thought this would be fitting.
I worked with Panera to create illustrations celebrating their Strawberry Poppyseed Salad for a swag box filled with soap, lip balm and a hat. The box is sent out to select Panera influencers to help celebrate the seasonal salad.
I was asked to participate in a show hosted by We Make. 26 Lettering Show is a gallery show of typographers and letterers creating 9x9 prints, using only three colors — black, metallic gold, and WeMake orange.
