Personal Handwriting Project: Looking for Love (Notes)

Awhile back I did some handwriting explorations based on personal ads. I have recently revisited the idea with a new approach, seeing how photographic story telling can be added into the mix. Here are a few of the recent mini-stories. Each one uses a different kind of pen and is composed from my photographic backgrounds.











Unlike fonts, hand lettered scripts have an authentic quirkiness and variation. As a handwriting artist I channel voices. Each personality calls out a different way of holding the pen and putting down thought. I love the theater of it — each time I get to change my clothes. See a few more of these explorations in the Personals project. Handwriting campaigns for clients, including Chase Ink, The American Heart Association, and others are collected in the Handwriting section of my website.
