Last night we all woke up at 3 a.m., not simultaneously more like stacked dominoes–one than the other and than the other and so on. If being woken up at 3 a.m. by a leaky diaper isn’t glamorous enough for you, my Frenchie decided she would throw up in our bedroom hallway, nothing like stepping in dog vomit in the early morn to put a little pep in your day. It’s a good thing that although I am bleary-eyed and haggard I can still find great joy in discoveries of new- to-me artists like Ms. Frida Clements (I am sure she will appreciate a post on her being prefaced by diaper leakage and dog vomit, who wouldn’t?)
I came across her work the other day and of course was immediately drawn to her lettering, I love a good hand drawn serif (Maybelle did a wonderful one on her site). I was going through her portfolio and was just taken aback by how prolific she is with her lettering work, this Feist poster knocked my socks off!
Frida is best known for her work on music posters, but you really need to check out her Tumblr and view her Punny series, it’ll be sure to turn your frown upside down.
And now my friends I must return to my life as a bumbling (but very happy) mommy…
P.P.S. If you come across a good free hand drawn serif let me know and I will add it to the list!
