Holiday Card 2011 Type Project Update!

A few weeks back I posted about a type project I was working on. I've since finished the type and just got something new off press using it. I still have trimming, folding and photographing to do, but expect these guys in my shop in time for Cyber Monday. I'll also be announcing a 10% sale code and some special deals on monday via my email newsletter. You can sign up right over there to the right of this post!

Hope you all had a great holiday weekend! More soon, and stay tuned for a new poster/t-shirt design I'll be pre-releasing in the next week or so.

Spider Thief for Isaac K,

I've  been having a lot of fun with drink and draw and getting drawing prompts from friends via twitter, txt and facebook. This latest one, I decided to flesh out a bit more, and so I present, in response to Isaacs request for "...shady character stealing a jar of spiders", The Spider Thief.
Have a request? Tweet me up @diskgrunt and I'll send you a high res signed jpg scan of the results from my fancy new scanner!

Custom Type... aka Holiday Card project 2011

I've managed to mangle type in the past with my hand written txt, but for one of my offerings this winter I'm working on developing a crisp clean bit of txt of my own. I mentioned this on FB just before I released my halloween skulls, but that wasn't the custom type I've been toiling over. I'm by no means a skilled typographer, and I'm only building out the letter forms I need at this point, but so far I'm pretty happy with the results of my efforts so I thought I would share my current progress. My hope is, to have the typography for this project done in the next week or so, and then get my final design on press asap.

Some points I'm already working on, the ends of the S break the curve and I don't like the thinness of the E right now compared to the width of the A and S.
