The Weekly Slam

There’s a lot of beautiful hand lettering of inspiring phrase out there on Instagram and Pinterest. There are some amazing artists using the social networks to work on a regular practice – a drawing a day, a song a day, etc. This project, The Weekly Slam, is my response to that. I want to play with letters, without trying to change the world, to focus on words that are awkward, crass, cheeky, insulting, and goofy. So, once a week for a year, I’ll see what I can learn about color, pattern, letterforms from repetition, practice and exploration.

I’ve had some requests to make these available as prints, if that interests you, and you have a fave – let me know with a message below in the comments.

Enjoy.
