Based out of New Jersey, Pantone is best known for it’s color matching system. Rest assured that if you are using Pantone with clientele around the world, they will translate across a large variety of industries. For obvious reasons, I use it most in regards to print. Imagine my surprise when I learned that Pantone […]

There came a time when I was asked for the Cincinnati, Ohio skyline at least 3-5 times a month. While I do try my best to create new city skylines in my spare time… that time has always been far and in between. I was recently commissioned to draw this seemingly elusive skyline. My other […]
It has been a while since I was commissioned to create a new hand scripted illustration of a baby name… and this request was for a friends baby #2! In following suit of the older brother… I created this art piece for baby Cash with a Corvette influence! Baby Name: Cash Visit Architette Studios on […]

As I mentioned previously in my Bird Themed Mail post, a couple of months ago, I decided to try my hand at designing my own “faux”-stage… or “artistamps” as they are more commonly known. This blog is updated all the time with examples of artists creating “faux”-stage stamps that don’t really have a postal value… […]
It is no secret that birds are one of my favorite animals. (You can follow my avian drawing/watching adventures on my other blog here.) It is probably not any surprise either that I adore snail mail. I have some super fun pen pals from coast to coast and across the pond. Last month, I decided […]
The Cornell Lab of Ornithology sent my mom birding kits for all her students where she teaches. She asked me to create a custom thank you card for her students to sign, with a compilation of some of my hand drawings of local birdies. This is what I created! To see more of my fine […]
For the Christmas holiday, I created this custom hand drawn map of a ranch in Fredericksburg, Texas for a client. It took a bit of research, and lots of layering, but the outcome was well received and is now framed and hanging in their ranch style home. My portfolio does not include too many “from […]
What a pleasure it was to create these custom hand lettering drawings / illustrations for a close friend of mine to give as holiday Christmas gifts to family. Both were tailored for each family… incorporating all family member names and then encapsulated as a whole in an illustration that said something about the family style. […]

For the Christmas holiday season, I had the pleasure of creating this custom hand drawn illustration of the world famous Rockefeller Center Ice Rink in New York City for a client whose main office headquarters overlook the rink and plaza area. Lucky me, I am very familiar with the whole entire area… I worked at […]

I cannot even recall how I first discovered the hand lettering work of Mary Kate McDevitt, but I have a feeling it was something about the Handwritten Letters project she did a couple of years back. In any case, I have been a big fan of her work for years, so when she announced that […]

Some newly hand scripted baby names… as a result of posting these back in September! Baby Name 1: Tucker Baby Name 2: Mary Baby Name 3: Adalee … and while posting about hand lettering, if you are a subscriber to my periodical newsletter (about 4 times a year)… you would have seen this fun hand […]

Now for a fun, new endeavor open to my clients. Our studio is proud to announce a new on-going project called “What’s Your Letter?“ to promote old-fashioned snail mail, and to foster my new-found interest in hand lettering/typography. Your answers to my questionnaire directly influence my design to create a unique, one-of-a-kind hand-drawn letter. […]
As a former architect, I’ve always had a passion for hand drawing and lettering. It’s a place to really just “get lost” in the lines of the overall picture. I recently signed up for a Skillshare class on hand lettering by designer and letterer Mary Kate McDevitt. I’ve always been an admirer of her work, […]
