Here are some samples of the different hand-lettering
styles I've been doodling lately.
(Note to self: red, shiny envelopes neither
scan nor photograph well...):
I tried to match the lettering style on the envelope
to the personality of the receiver.
This playful script was for a happy, cheerful recipient.
This one was made out of little suns but had an overall mechanical feel
so I sent it to an engineer family who finds it amusing
to repeatedly inform me of their warm winter weather.
This kooky, asteroid, from-another-planet style
went to an appropriate family.
No offense Mom.
And, of course, this foofy-fancy one had to go to my sister
who likes to think that she's real tough
but who is actually quite sweet.
Happy Mail to you!
