- In early 2013 I met a few important people in my life and career. One is my dear friend Jill DeHaan, who was one of the first to show me proper handlettering (I had been stumbling around with it for about a year prior). I fell in love with the craft and for about a year it was all I did, day and night. I received a large number of requests and commissions to do type work, and still do. This is a collection of selected type pieces that I have done over the past few years.
