Twilight Zone

This is me going crazy with a series of six lines. I talk a lot about “artistic stamina,” something I feel is a huge factor in the execution of art. Hand drawn typography was my father’s thing, this is purely me recreating the logo using no establishing pencils lines, just Continue Reading

I love movies featuring high adventure and/or swashbuckling, like Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, or (on the television side) Land of the Lost. Disney Plus has presented us with a lot of classics that we didn’t have immediate access to before, so I’ve compiled a short list of Continue Reading

Clams and Emotion

No, I don’t really know what it means. Admission: Most of the words in my typography work are lines from 50’s and 60’s shows and movies, sometimes a phrase will bounce around in my skull until I put it on paper. I did this in pencil and inked it with Continue Reading

The New Pentel Sharp Goes Metal, But We’re Talking Stryper

The Pentel Sharp P207 (or P205 for that matter) changed the whole game: perfect weight, perfect grip, supreme sturdiness, and unassailable dependability, but unfortunately the eraser is poorly designed, its metal carriage is too small, resulting in the entire eraser mechanism having a tendency to slide inside the pencil, failing Continue Reading
