I’m so excited to introduce a brand new column today. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile now, and what better time than the present, right?
Since embarking as a freelancer/do-it-myself-er, I’ve spent a lot of time feeling like I’m just running around wondering what the heck I’m doing. I’m sure other freelancers and self-employeds can attest that it’s not pretty. How do we moderate ourselves and get work done when sitting on the couch eating pizza rolls is also a very plausible (and oftentimes more appealing) option? We, or at least I, need some kind of structure to maintain productivity. That’s why I’m introducing Make Your Mark.
Make Your Mark will be a weekly column. Every Friday I am going to post a bit of handlettered work in the form of an inspirational, go-get-’em-tiger quote. I can’t think of a better way to hold myself accountable to practicing my lettering and calligraphy, blogging, and thinking positively than to focus it all in a pretty image! If you can, I’d love to hear it. Because I’d probably want to do that too.
I’m really excited about this. - L
