Today’s wise words brought to you by Stephen King. These words will appear in my next book of hand lettered quotes.

I’m headed this morning to Summit Powder Mountain for a week-long artist residency. I’ll be taking photos there all week and documenting the progress on the mural I’ll be painting. You can follow along over on Instagram.

Have a great Monday!

New Work for Airbnb

02/03/15

Every now and again I get to work for a serious dream client — a company who has a really great mission & vision, a clean aesthetic & beautiful brand, and is filled with nice people. Recently I got to work for one such company, Airbnb, the community marketplace for people to list, discover, and book unique accommodations around the world. I used Airbnb when I traveled to Scandinavia back in 2012 and had a really fantastic experience. I plan to use them again when I travel to Spain and Portugal later this year.

Yesterday Airbnb posted an interview with me on their blog about the work I did for them & my own thoughts on travel in their Makers profile series. They also shared some of the work I did for them, which you can also see below. Pop over here to take a look!

Friends, as you may know, I’ve been working on a 2nd book of hand lettered quotes (a follow up to Whatever You Are, Be a Good One), focused on bravery. I’m so excited to show you the cover today and let you know that it will be out in August/September of this year. I’ll let you know this summer when it’s available for pre-order. I plan also to do some book signings, so stay tuned!

Many of the quotes from this book have been featured here as Words for the Day over the last few months, so you can get a preview of what’s included in this new volume.

Have a great weekend, friends!
