Some lettering I did recently for a shirt for the family/friends of Mike to wear to support his battle with kidney cancer.
Olle Goes Vintage
I totally told myself to leave the Olle lettering alone so I can sit on it for a few days and then review again later, but hey, what better way to waste precious time needed for actual paid work than goofing around? I’m having fun messing with it though :) Okay, back to work!
Still Kicking in 2013
Sooooooo 2012 was crazy. Some good, some great, some horrible, but I keep chugging along so hopefully I’ll have more time to get better and better at my lettering and illustration in 2013! To kick things off, there’s a few new projects on my site and for side projects I’m starting to develop lettering for my first forray into the font biz. Here’s a quick shot I just...
Butter Rum, phase 1
Soooo, just trying something new. here’s phase 1! Stay tuned as it evolves.
Bored on Sunday
Downtime between projects is both a blessing and a curse! So what do I do on a Sunday with no work, I create a portrait of my shar-pei :) I do more lettering than illustration in my 9-5 stuff so it’s nice sometimes to work out the ol’ illo muscles.
Agathe the Flexible
I just finished some artwork for the great Buenos Aires band, Agathe y el Fideicomiso! Check out Agathe, the two-headed snake charming, knife throwing contortionist! Here’s a sneak peak, the full work is up on my site! www.danielleishere.com
Everywhere Project - Take 2
Sooooo, this tuned out way different than the first sneak peak one post down. Sometimes I get stuck and it’s not quite turning out the way I want so I have to rethink and start redoing either from scratch or the pieces I have in order to meet deadline! See the full work at my site: www.danielleishere.com.
Tulsa - Everywhere Project
Still in progress! Need to hurry up and finish, the deadline approacheth! Handlettering based off old 40s/50s styles.
Cool as Ice
A little snippet of 3 shirt designs I created for Taste Restaurant Branding. More to come soon on the main site! Hand-lettering mostly and illo work!
C is for Cinderella
A little sneak peak for some lettering/illo concept work done recently for SpotCo.
Let's Be Real on Valentine's (cont.)
The first of the series is done! Only a few-ish days late :) Check out the first work in the series on the site: www.danielleishere.com
Let's Be Real on Valentine's Day
Sneak peak of my own brand of Valentine’s Day cards. This is for a series called “Let’s Be Real on Valentine’s Day.” This one is “You owe me money, but I still love you.” Next up is “Your cologne makes me sneeze, but I still love you.” Any other suggestions?? Hopefully I get them done so I can post on the 14th!
Ice Cream Cheer
Some illustrations I made for some personal stationery for my good friend Lindsey! I felt the ice cream head guy was a little too creepy so I didn’t send that one to her :D I did a monogram for her name as well and sent these postcards off for her birthday.
New New New Year
A little piece of a bigger lettering work to ring in the New Year. Only 20 some hours late, what can I say, there was a River Monsters marathon. Go to www.danielleishere.com to see the full work.
Some new lettering I’m developing for a project. Some thick lovely lines, yeah? More to come!
Low and Slow
Some new lettering, a little low, a little slow. I’m making a full alphabet, I’m thinking of making it as a download on the main site, as an .eps more than likely. What do y’all think?
Clean and Safe Atomic Energy at Home
How about a little fun with your own home atomic energy kit? Was going to be part of a bigger poster, officially in the “to work on” category.
Part of a new series of cards I’m working on. I need to work on my illos more :)
Shelby & Seth
Update to Shelby & Seth’s wedding invites. They wanted some more color and liked the idea of the monogram look because of the double S so here it is! On a totally unrelated note, how on earth do you make your “Notes” and “Likes” show up on comment view on Tumblr? I’ve googled it to death and still can’t get it to work. Any help out there??
Oh, Happy Day!
A header illustration and hand-lettering for a wedding invite for Shelby and Seth. Fun and light hearted and I love the look of dark chocolate and a buttercup yellow on white.
This Girl Sylvia - Rough Lettering
Just a quick computer rough for This Girl Sylvia Photography’s logo. The finished logo is up on the main site, but I was always sad to see this one in the reject pile.
A little lettering for a possible card using old vintage movie title lettering as inspiration. I like the style a lot, maybe I’ll come back to it sometime in the near future to flesh it out some more.
Strawberry is a Strawberry
Different lettering scripts for multiple brand lines for Melting Pot Restaurants. I love doing script lettering! For more Melting Pot work, check out: Melting Pot Restaurant
