My Lettering Entry for the TYPISM Book

This is my lettering entry for the 2013 TYPISM book. 

I prefer to letter this style when I am not creating art for commercial projects. All the contract lettering I have done throughout my professional career has been tightly structured with restrictions and legibility as a priority.  I  cannot follow the same agenda in personal work. 

For whatever reason, I write words with mix of upper and lowercase. I find beauty in lettering with the imperfect human factor. It has taken nearly a lifetime to just go with the flow of it all. I basically use vector lines to draw what I see in the preliminary rough and remain true to the sketch.

Impossible To Be Inside

Everytime I visit my garden I find it almost impossible spend time in my office. Had to put that thought into a quick lettering piece for today.
