I'm so excited to see my work for the cover of Uppercase Magazine be featured (by proxy) on a webpage for Type Directors Club/NYC. The wonderful Janine Vangool, editor of Uppercase, who invited my work to be on the cover, is a judge for this year's TDC. If you scroll down far enough, you will see my cover! Thanks Janine!

OMG the BEST Roman lettering is along the Appian Way….hard to find, but so worth it!
Taught an Experimental Letterpress Workshop with my friend Jeff Pulaski associated with the Face Forward Conference in Dublin, Ireland in December. The workshop was at The National Print Museum and featured a very eclectic group of students from Russia, Mexico, Hong Kong, Germany, USA & Ireland. Everybody created enough prints to have a print exchange between all members of the group and we created a folio to hold it all with "Face Forward" cut in wood and printed letterpress on the Vandercook from my custom calligraphy. Big shout-out to Carla Merriman, Mary Plunkett, and the crew at the Print Museum and Mary Ann Bolger and Claire Bell who organized the conference.
laser cutting my lettering in wood for future letterpress printing, printing and color experiments…..
