Looking back, moving forward
In January, my article for UPPERCASE Magazine hit the stands.
February was mostly dedicated to paint explorations (The results come later in the year...)
In April, I released a collection of paintings called New & Improved.
May was more studio painting time, which lead to the release of my Painted with Pride collection in June.
In July, I completed some custom lettering for a theatre game show called "Whose Land is it Anyway". I also completed some custom sign painting for one of my favourite local shops, Secret Planet. As well, I did some custom lettering for the cover of Reader's Digest (in English and French!) July was also my birthday month and I painted a self-portrait to mark the year.
In September, I jumped on a plane to NYC for a top secret project (more details in December...)
The biggest news of the year came in December. My new online course, Sign Creation with Hand-Painted Lettering, was launched on Domestika. It is so exciting that I'll be able to share my passion for sign painting with students from around the world.
And to cap of the year, I received a most generous mention of my Rotary Calendar from Martha Stewart in her holiday guide, 54 Holiday Gifts Perfect for the Guys in Your Life.
2021 was another topsy turvy year. I am endlessly grateful to be able to do work that I love. This also marks 10 full years of freelance life (more to come on that in the new year...)
Have a safe and happy holiday!
