Live With Intention



My latest project. It's not a book; it's more of a folding card, I guess. It's not perfect but it sure was good practice for some lettering. I used a #5 Mitchell nib for the blue text and a 1/4" flat brush for the white. The text is miscellaneous "advice" for a graduate. Fun to read; fun to work on.

I would say it's good advice for anyone - hint, hint.

For the record, I didn't use Mary Anne's words in this piece, just the phrase "Live with intention." The advice was a list of things like, call your mother, floss, always take an outstretched hand, be the first to smile, say please, keep your work area neat, say thank you alot, polish your shoes -- things like that.
