lettering class at LDBA

LDBA- Brooklyn, NY
These are some lovely images I pulled from various sign painting and lettering websites (the holiday cards are available for purchase here!) to introduce a class being held at LDBA that I am very excited about: Lettering, with Becky Johnson.
Learn classic lettering and font techniques in this 90 minute class. You will create a series of notecards in whichever script you choose, on your choice of card size, and in a range of colored ink – just in time for Holiday Thank You cards! Take home 5 cards and envelopes plus techniques that will help you continue your lettering at home. Refreshments provided.

I ran across a story today, and I wanted to share it, along with these images. They were taken in the north pole; as dawn broke, these ‘ice flowers” began blooming on the ocean’s surface right before the story- teller’s eyes:
“I was absolutely astounded,” he says. They were little protrusions of ice, delicate, like snowflakes. They began growing in the dry, cold air “like a meadow spreading off in all directions. Every available surface was covered with them.” What are they?
“Frost flowers,” he was told. “I’d never heard of them,” Jeff says, “but they were everywhere.”
