Emily McDowell sent me a link to her work and I’m so impressed! She left a successful career in advertising to build a new career as an illustrator (scary + brave!). She’s recently been focusing on hand-lettering, creating posters of meaningful quotes. Aren’t they beautiful?

P.S. — I adore hand lettering. I really, really want to take a calligraphy class. Have you ever?
