Hand lettered vintage trucks.

During a trip to the Isle of Wight toward the end of August, I found myself wandering around a Steam Show at Havenstreet, the Island’s heritage steam railway. One of the attractions on offer was a collection of vintage vehicles, many of which were beautifully branded and decorated with hand painted lettering and logos.

I’ve included a few examples above, but the Hanley Amusements truck in particular caught my eye. Close scrutiny revealed the intricacy of the brush strokes that aren’t obvious from a distance, so I included a couple of extra photos of one of its panels. It really evokes that era of old-fashioned fairground rides carrying elaborate and brightly-coloured patterns and lettering.

French Lettering

While staying in South West France over September I’ve been keeping my eye out for the type and lettering to snap. Here’s some so far.

Modern Dog, a design firm based in Seattle, has been fighting a copyright battle for over a year against two colossal corporations: Target and Disney. In 2008, Modern Dog published their very first book that chronicled the past twenty years of their work. The book had two sections (the inside of the front and back covers) that featured illustrations of beloved dogs - their own dogs, dogs of friends, made up dogs, etc. A few years later, it came to their attention that their dog illustrations had been printed and sold as t-shirts, which was also part of an advertising campaign for a movie.

After seeing Robynne Raye (one of the two owners at Modern Dog - Michael Strassburger is the other) speak at an AIGA San Francisco copyright infringement lecture, I wanted to create an illustration in honor of Modern Dog’s courage and their choice to fight for their creative rights.
 
AIGA San Francisco has done a wonderful job in compiling supportive comments from well-known designers, which can be viewed HERE
 
Modern Dog’s battle is paramount to not only the design industry, but to the rest of the creative world. Their fight is our fight.

The New York Public Library asked me to select some of my favorite books for four reading lists – wisdom on writing, great reads about New York City, heart- and brain-stirring books on pets and animals, and timeless treats for young readers – to display in their bookstore. I partnered with the magnificent Kelli Anderson to turn the reading lists into a whimsical diorama of 3D papercraft sculptures celebrating the joy of books. Take a peek.
