A compilation of personal lettering projects.
I wanted to create something for the Lunar New Year that was inspired traditional Chinese calligraphy but reflected my personal style, and here were the final products!
The first image is of the greeting “gong hei fat choy” to wish others health and wealth. Basically, get money haha.
Second is the character for luck. Often you see it turned upside down and over the door. It’s a play on words! “Upside down luck” sounds like “luck at your door” in most Chinese dialects.
I'm one of those cheeseballs that actually finds the sentiment behind Valentine's Day very sweet. Not the whole Hallmark marketing aspect, but just the idea of telling someone you love them. I was listening to a song by Sufjan Stevens and was inspired to whip up this little doodle. I also made a whole playlist of romantic tunes you can listen to.
Created this custom little card to include while shipping orders of my prints.
