{Illustration} Hand Drawn Font


Experimenting with hand drawn words. The name 'Poipu', which by the way is a Hawaiian  word, and the name of the southern shore of Kauai, started off as a sketch on paper.  I decided to use it digitally on my beach photo. I am becoming addicted to this new process. I've never thought of doing much with my handwriting until now. What do you think?

    1. Hi Alicia, thanks! Maybe one day I'll get paid for my handwriting, now that'll be something. Hope all is well with you :) Thanks for your comment xo

  2. This is so lovely! I found you through Flying Lessons. You have beautiful photographs, and I love your other posts with mixed media and journaling. I've bookmarked you. Can't wait to see more of your artwork.

say what, a Disclaimer

Hi there! Photography and art featured on this blog, unless where noted, came from my camera and were made or styled by my hands. You may not use my photos for profit or on commercial websites, but we might be able to work something out with a dozen chocolate macarons, and a juicy deal. Do not remove my watermarks or copyright markings from my photos (please see previous sentence). I won't bite, well unless you infringe on my copyright. But really, send me an email, I'm pretty nice. The snail mail on my blog includes my mail or the work from other artists and pen friends. I do my best to give everyone credit. But, in the case where I have missed the proper credit please contact me to address it. If you would like to re-blog or pin any of my original works please be the awesome person that you are and give me a shout out a.k.a. proper credit, and link it back here. Speaking of links, I do on occasion link out to other sites, however I am not responsible for the content you find on those sites. Sometimes clicking on a link I’ve provided may be a link to a site that will give me a small commission if you buy something from them. Which means that I might get paid (hopefully not in gum) if you click on that link, whoo-hoo. Reason why I’m telling you is because I want to be honest with you and frankly, because it’s illegal not to. That said, I promise to use any affiliate commissions earned for good cause: like stationery hauls and lattes. Thank you kindly, Merissa
