Hi.

Welcome to my fashion blog and design site. I'm just your typical Boston girl who brunches in Beacon Hill and curses in Southie.

The Interview Handlettering

The Interview Handlettering

I'm always finding inspiration, and most recently I found it in the new movie, The Interview. I did it for 'Merica, and I think Seth Rogen can do no wrong (and Adam Sandler...if you didn't read some of my previous entries, yes I'm Jewish). I digress - I bought The Interview, yes I bought it, and LOVED it. Of course it was a crazy flick with 10 million punchlines that were very memorable. I realized I haven't done any hand lettering in a while, so I thought I'd use one of the lines from the movie. Also, I'm succeeding with one of my resolutions: designing something at least once a month for fun. So here's my take on the line: "They hate us because they aint us" - or maybe it was "they hate us because they anus" - but I did "aint" because I felt it would have been slightly more appropriate for a portfolio piece...slightly.

I'm on my way to accomplishing one of my resolutions, doing something creative for fun, at least once a month. P.s. I did this in 24 hours - from sketch to illustrator, just to see how it would turn out.

The art of hand lettering is something I think I personally suck at, but LOVE, and want to master. I drew this on a scrap piece of paper, and brought it into Illustrator and traced my own work. I'd still like to work on it, and perfect it, but I thought I'd share what I did today. Below is my rough draft scrap paper. The tried to match the background with maybe something the character Dave Skylark would wear - he wore a lot of purple.
