It’s Craft Show Season

I spent the past two weekends at Craft Shows lettering names, etc. on Christmas ornaments.
All my ornaments are glass. I letter, or add artwork, according to what the person would like on their ornament.  It’s a huge show, so after they peruse the many booths, they return and I have their item ready to go. Below are samples of ones I created this past weekend.  Feel free to contact me to create one for you!

Treasure Map

Before      After Photo

A friend asked me to create a treasure map for her grandchildren. They will all be together at the beach on Thanksgiving, so this is a perfect activity for them and a chance for Grandma to get rid of all her old coins from other countries.

I used gold parchment paper and lettered the title with a #1 Mitchell nib and Moon Palace Sumi ink. The directions were done with a .3 Staedtler pigment liner and the parrot drawn from one she liked.  The final thing was to roll it up a couple times and then burn the edges.  This will be rolled up and put into a wine bottle to be ‘discovered’ by the grandkids.

Vanishing Point by Boz Scaggs

I have always liked these lyrics from Boz’s song. It’s something to letter while practicing!

Copperplate practice

Copperplate practice 8.22

I went to the IAMPETH conference in early August in Indianapolis and loved it!  I had never lettered with pointed pen before this and was nervous.  I took Engrossers Script with Bob Hurford on the first day and loved it.  He is a great teacher.   I have been practicing ever since and this is my Engrossers/Copperplate alphabet for today!  I can see that I need work on many of the letters!  :)

I used a Nikko G nib with Moon Palace Sumi Ink.

This envelope was lettered in a navy blue ink for a recent calligraphy project that I did. I developed this style last year for my daughter’s wedding and named it after her.
I am available to letter the envelopes for your invitation. My pricing is very reasonable and the turn-around time is approximately two weeks, depending on the amount of envelopes you need lettered. Please contact me at jherr54@aol.com for more information.
