Click Bait: 19 Instagrams You Should Follow If You Love Pretty Handwriting Redux

Click bait giant Buzzfeed posted 19 Instagrams You Should Follow If You’re Slightly Obsessed With Pretty Handwriting and while there are some goodies in there and people I’d certainly recommend myself like Kara Benz, AKA Boho Berry, I decided I’d create my own click bait version.

These are my 19 Instagrams you should follow if you love pretty handwriting, calligraphy and typography.

  1. Mary Kate McDevitt: hand-lettering artist and illustrator extraordinaire.

Video: Philip Ashforth Coppola Illustrating New York City’s Subway Stations

Philip Ashforth Coppola has spent the last 38 years illustrating the details of New York City’s subway stations. Many of the illustrations are done with ballpoint pen and are exquisitely detailed. New York Bound Books has published small editions of bound volumes of some of the sketches. This video is from the Great Big Story series.

There’s a lovely article on the NYTimes and there is also a 30 minute film short called One Track Mind that also details Coppola’s work.

Art of the Day: Momiji Figures

Momiji Clever Clogs

Momiji makes super cute resin figures, hand painted and beautifully packaged with a slot at the bottom to hide a secret message. My pal Sandi over at Creatively Curated told me about the pen and pencil themed designs recently released and I finally got down my list to check them out. Then immediately ordered them both. And it was hard to stop with just two figures. Everything they make is so amazing. I really wanted the giant 6.5″ tall Emmeline daredevil figure but my husband talked me out of it since its $69.95.

The pencil figure is called Clever Clogs and sells for $21.95 and stands about 3″ (8cm) tall. The fountain pen figure is called Create and is also $21.95 and 3″ tall.
