I'm sure you've all heard by now how much I LOVE hand drawn type (take a look around... it's everywhere... I just can't seem to help myself!). So, this was my project for last night! My poor (patient) boyfriend sketched and watched Dirty Jobs with me while I painstakingly tweaked all the lines in Illustrator. Don't worry... we rewarded all our hard work with pancakes and omelets afterwards.

I'm thinking about making this a print... I think it would be cute in a bedroom. Not sure if these are the colors I'll stick with though... I am one fickle designer, let me tell you!

This isn't all I've been working on though... and I can't wait to show you the rest! This coming Monday will be a kind of mini launch of Little Aviary! I'm excited... and nervous... and my tummy gets all jittery... every time i think about it! Eek!

i've recently become obsessed with typography - i think the print would be darling in a bedroom (above the bed!) i'm not a big fan of purple, but it definitely is a good "sleepy" color!
just found your blog - it's adorable! happy new year, keep blogging!
