I am sure a lot of you that are calligraphy/lettering enthusiasts are aware of Maybelle Imasa-Stuklus. In this niche world of lettering she is considered the ‘creme de la creme‘ of lettering artists. Her work has been featured in Martha Stewart Weddings, Sunset magazine, Victoria magazine, too many blogs to list and she’s even had her own beautiful project with Chronicle Books. I have had the immense pleasure to get to know Maybelle a little bit over the past month and I can attest that she is as kind as she is talented. It’s very refreshing to ‘meet’ someone (albeit virtually) that is as great as you have imagined they might be. I am hoping that Maybelle will be inclined to let me interview her for a future post so if you have specific questions you want me to ask her, you may want to leave them in the comments (I know I have a boat load I want to ask her). I wanted to feature Maybelle today for all the lucky people that are on the West Coast, specifically Northern California as Maybelle is teaching at the newly launched Makeshift Society a course she developed called Calligraphy in the 21st Century. If you have been wanting to dabble in this discipline and you are in the area then I highly suggest you jump at this unique opportunity. Oh, how I wish that I could be there!
P.S. Tomorrow I am going to announce my new Foto project, so stop by so we can motivate each other. I know I am going to need the support since I have failed two years in a row (ouch) and obviously want to publicly humiliate myself for a third time. Viva 2013!
