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 Frank Lloyd Wright Dog House

The story about a boy who asked a famous architect for a favor. He had a paper route, he said, and hoped that the architect might design for Eddie, his black Lab, a house “which would be easy to build and would go with our house.” His father had commissioned Wright to design a house…
