Chalkboard lettering

Some of you may not know that Studio Byrd offers chalkboard lettering among its many services. The freedom and liveliness of this medium are greatly satisfying to me.

Ulysses excerpt

July 27, 2013

My entry in the Portland Society for Calligraphy’s fall 2013 member show featured an excerpt from the Cyclops chapter of Ulysses. I once saw these words on a gigantic two- or three-story-high banner in Dublin on Bloomsday, probably as publicity for a local grocery store, and the pungent, tangible list of vegetables has stuck with me for many years. I wanted my piece to have a similarly visceral effect on a smaller scale, so I framed it with some food-related objects.
