A Blank Book Called New Year’s

new years quote

 

I meant to post this on New Year’s Day but I left the lettering in my scanner at work and forgot to scan it. I found it this morning. The sentiment remains true and any day can be the first chapter of your new year.

This was drawn with a flexible nib dip pen in a Tachikawa wooden nib holder using Pelikan 4001 black ink on Borden & Riley 100R Rough Cotton Rag Marker Paper (which has been discontinued). I scanned it in black and white and colorized in Photoshop.

JooJoo, halfway through

This a few pages from Afsaneh Tajvidi, a Toronto-based artist and blogger. Her sweet watercolor illustrations and collages seemed like the perfect addition to the Halfway Through series. She combines found objects,  pen,  watercolor, colored pencils, gouache, stickers, washi tape and rubber stamps to create her vignettes.

Olivetti Graphika Poster

 

Because Giovanni Pintori was a designer to be reckoned with and Olivetti was the typewriter manufacturer to be reckoned with, I give you the Olietti Graphika poster designed by Pintori from Boom Undergrounds copious archives.
