Hand Lettering

As I was doing a search for inspirational quotes, I came across the blog of artist, Lisa Congdon.  Congdon is a California native who had no formal artistic training and is mostly self taught.  Last year, she decided to do a hand lettering 365 day project.  You can view all the pieces she created here and as you can see, she didn’t just hand letter quotes.  They are so much more than that!  Each are unique and different – little works of art.  I could see them framed individually, covering an entire wall (or multiple walls), creating a space of real inspiration.  A few of my favorites…

I also came across Kelly Cummings, who is a photographer but recently got into calligraphy.  She was inspired by Congdon’s 365 days of hand lettering and decided to do her own version.  Her style is very different, but so beautiful.  I would love to have a few of her quotes framed in my home…
