New in my Shop! Miss Elizabeth Script


May I have the pleasure of introducing Miss Elizabeth- a lively script full of wit and vivacity, and just as charming, clever, and friendly as its namesake heroine from the classic Austen novel that inspired this work. Both elegant and powerful, Miss Elizabeth will add a rustic charm to your invitations, cards, home decor, branding, and more!

Meet Humoresque!


I’m delighted to introduce you to Humoresque, a wisecracking sign painter mini-font family. The family began as a layered lettering set in Artisan’s Tool Chest. If you liked using that, you’ll enjoy using the first font family in the Artisan Type Collection- Humoresque! The “Revival” lettering set has been refined, boosted, and programmed as a font that you can install and use for all of your Victorian-revival style projects. Humoresque draws inspiration from modern hand-lettering and turn-of-the-century decorative type. It’s great for bold displays and headlines of wit and whimsy. Check out the family here!

New in my Shop! An American Autumn


Throughout most of the United States- especially where I live- the blaze of brilliant red, vermillion, orange, saffron, yellow, and gold creates a rich visual poetry that lasts throughout the months of September and October. This year in Ohio, the fall colors were especially bright and inspiring. As a result, I give you An American Autumn, a charming collection of over 150 autumn illustrations and clipart elements that will be perfect for all your fall-related designs.

I had a busy autumn. And I meant to share this a lot earlier. And I know it’s almost winter. But I’m a better-late-than-never kind of person! 🙂 Check it out in my shop. Thanksgiving is still yet to come! It’s on sale for a limited time. Continue reading

Create a Simple Animated GIF from your Lettering


Recently I entered a contest, deciding to procrastinate no longer in learning to create animated GIFs in Photoshop to announce my latest product. The process was much easier than I had imagined. Drawing inspiration from the header here, I created a fun and easy way to animate my hand lettering- or any design- using Photoshop to create an animated GIF. I’ve also created some actions (which you can download free) that streamlined and sped up the process. Continue reading
