A Road Trip to Roswell, Lettering & Illustration

In anticipation for our trip to Roswell NM, I decided to create a little lettering project for myself! Here’s a little walkthrough for ya on how I tackled this. Getting Started & Building I almost always start with small sketches, to get the idea out. Sometimes the idea I have in my head doesn’t really…

The Orignaux Moose Shop

I am super thrilled to announce the opening of our own store front:! This has been a long time coming, but I finally found the time to put it all together. Last night I put the final touches on everything, though I still have a few more pieces to list. The Etsy Shop will…


I ended last week with something space related; why not start this week the same way by admiring these stunning quilts by Jimmy McBride!

I did have a small project for myself, and that was to get these “Ladies in Type” sketches matted and framed. I think that…

Ladies in Type: COMPLETED!

And I could not be happier! I briefly posted about this project before, and a few of these have gone up in the shop, but there’s really nothing like having the whole set complete and seeing it all, as a whole. The collection took about 5 months, from beginning to end (with a couple of…
