Hand Lettering Collection

  • I couldn't ask for a more awesome brother. I'm truly thankful for the relationship we share. We've always been there for each other, and we've always supported each other. We've been keepin' it real.
     
     
  • We need to celebrate and support those who are still capable of and choose to do things themselves, and work by hand. It’s sad seeing large companies steal ideas, and then mass produce cheaper versions. Technology can be very useful but learn how to utilize it, don’t be consumed or replaced by it. An artist is paid for their vision as well as their labor.
     
     
  • We’ve reached a point in which most of our experiences are indoors. We’ve traded the unknown of the outdoors for the comfort of indoor passage. Our days are spent in our homes, in our cars, in our office space, and wherever else we may go it’s likely that we’ll be inside. I challenge you to explore your surroundings. Walk your neighborhood. Bike down roads you’ve never been down. Stop putting yourself in a box, and adventure outdoors.
     
     
  • Dance! Every. Single. Day.


  • It’s often perceived that first times only come with new experiences. As we grow older we have less and less first experiences because we’ve, of course, done more and more. 100% belief in that limits our ability to discover first times. You can do the same thing twice, but experience it differently each time meaning that both times were first experiences. When we look at the surface of what we do and accomplish we become satisfied with it and repeat it. Every day I want to discover something new. Let’s open our minds, be creative, and start discovering first.
     
     

  • If you love a flower don’t pick it up. If you pick it up it dies and ceases to be what you love. So if you love a flower let it be. Love is not about possession. Love it about appreciation.

  • Have you ever recognized someone's presence as a gift? Too often we forget to thank those around us for merely choosing to be a part of our lives. Be grateful for the time we share with others and never take it for granted. Actually seeing someone smile or hearing their laugh is a gift, never discount that. I encourage you to thank those around you, and to never stop giving.
     
     
  • I would like to travel the world with you twice. Once, to see the world. Twice, to see the way you see the world. - Today is my one year anniversary with@brantberry; we aren't spending the day together because I'm away at Nationals, but we were able to celebrate this past weekend. This is the first relationship I've ever been in, and despite living in a different state, we've made this work and I've had the best year I could have hoped for. I'm ready for more adventures.
     
     
  • "Real running makes other people nervous."
     
     
  • At the beginning of September in 2012 I had moved to Savannah for school and found myself particularly interested in textures. I was in search of a project that’d keep me posting on instagram and the idea of photography the various textures in Savannah came easy. The project lasted a while, but eventually grew bland and the search for a new project to explore resulted in #makeitdiagonal. Although I no longer keep up with these two projects I’ll occasionally upload a photo for them on my personal instagram account. #dailytexture and#makeitdiagonal can both be found on instagram and I encourage you to add to them as well!
     
     
  • My life hit a point of comfort, but in a sense of monotony. I felt as though I was getting through the days rather than experiencing the days. After taking the time to reflect I was able to recognize the lack of adventure in my life. I felt I had lost a part of my soul which used to greatly influence me as a child. Even with more freedom than I’ve had before I still wasn’t creating the opportunities to explore. I looked at Adventure as an old friend, and made a decision at that moment to reconnect with them.
     
     
  • When you’re willing to invest yourself in the process and development of your ideas you are enabling potential. Setting final goals or expectations that aren’t related to function such as style or end look only limits your ability to learn, and create quality work. Designing with final intent rids you of intuition which doesn’t allow for crucial design choices and evaluations to be made. So be more involved in the process than the product.
     
     
  • Ask yourself, “If I can’t start now will I ever start?” Your goals and aspirations should be more than just a thought. Write down every step needed to accomplish your goals and then determine what you can do right now to begin working towards them. The hardest part is starting — break down the steps and work incrementally everyday. Rid yourself of all excuses, and find your way.
