Brush Lettered Postcard

I've been teaching brush lettering, lately--a change of pace from the copperplate and italic that I teach for UC Riverside extension. So, when it came time to design my July ATCs, of course, I lettered with a brush pen. Then, I followed up with the complementary postcard, pictured here--a great way to keep in touch with friends.

The drawing is also done with a brush--a brown Tombo. The plants were sketched at the San Diego Botanic Garden, formerly Quail Gardens, in Encinitas.

I've been asked to teach an intro to brush session, scheduled for Oct 9 in Encinitas--more info to follow.
