off topic - iskra johnson

second in my series of sunday off topic posts. the first one featured abbey sy who is completely self taught. at the other end of the spectrum is iskra johnson a lettering artist/designer who lives in seattle. you could spend a couple hours just wandering through her blog. she has studied with the masters and also manages to do some very thoughtful writing about a wide range of topics. if you dig back into the archive of blog posts there is a lot to learn about the world of lettering. or, if you are devoted to puttering, just soak up some of the gorgeousness and get back to your puttering.

this post mentions that she does have some treasured mail but won't post it on her blog:

the first page of her blog is here:

below is a sample of her more formal work. i chose the first example because it looks like something we could attempt.
