Last week, I had the wonderful opportunity to celebrate the New Year in Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic. The most striking elements of the landscape, to me, were the hand-painted signs. Everywhere I looked there were beautifully drawn letters advertising everything from the Internet to the Boston Celtics (though I didn’t get a picture of the Celtics logo). Anyway, the lettering felt really fresh to me, really inspiring. Maybe even reminding me a little of Margaret Kilgallen. So here it is.
The water and sand were rather lovely, too.
A relaxing and beautiful way to bring in a new year. For 2010, look forward to more news from the Letterpress Collective, some hand-made books, some new writing and of course some drawing too. Happy new decade!
