St Bride Talk & new edition of 'Voice of all the Gods'
Posted on: 22-03-2013
My talk at St Bride in London on 26th March is fast approaching. Being an introvert I have some trepidation but I'm also looking forward to it. A new edition of 'The Voice of all the Gods' print will be available on the night. This colourway is hand finished with 23.5 carat gold leaf. I'm really pleased with how it has turned out. You can catch a glimpse of it here. For the St Bride event only this edition will be available at a £20 discount. Any remaining prints will then become available online via the usual channels after the event.
Pick Me Up 2013
Posted on: 04-03-2013
I feel honoured to have been invited to spend a day at 'Pick Me Up' Graphic Arts Festival in London this year doing a 'Daily Special'. The idea is I set up shop for the day writing out peoples names in my best fancy handwriting for hard cash. I will also be selling prints and originals which will be available for the duration of the event in the Pick Me Up shop. Event details here, more to follow in due course.

I posted a short clip on Vimeo of me practising calligraphy. In one week it has had just under 600,000 views, such is the power of the internet. You can see it here.

I’ve been interviewed by Salon. It’s great to get some mainstream publicity for type design, lettering and calligraphy. You can read the article here.

Some guy called Seb Lester is talking about his work at St. Bride in London on 26th March. The talk is entitled 'Peace, Hellfire & Tits'. The blurb reads "Seb Lester charts his life in letters from early student work to corporate type design for some of the world's biggest companies to recent art, design and illustration projects." Full details here.
Talking at Universities
Posted on: 06-01-2013
I'd like to do a couple of low key talks in March in preparation for some bigger
talks planned later in the year. If you're a student or teacher in the UK, you
regularly have designers speak at your university, and would like me to talk
about my work at your university then drop me a line and we'll see if we can
arrange something. As things stand I have an extremely busy schedule for
the next 2-3 months and so the dates that currently best fit my schedule
are between 11-22nd March but I will try and be flexible if I have to.
Festive Best Wishes
Posted on: 21-12-2012
I just want to say a quick festive best wishes to you all. Thank you for taking an interest in my work. Thank you especially to anyone who has bought a print, typeface, original piece of art, or commissioned me this year. You make it possible for me to continue to do something I love more than you might imagine. I greatly appreciate that.
Pamela continues to improve, touch wood, so it's exciting to be able to work and play again. I am learning and progressing every week. At the moment I'm working in FontLab on a modern corporate typeface for a multi-national corporation during the day. The evenings are all about tradition — calligraphy, goose quills, gold leaf gilding and heraldry. This 1,400 year leap in cutting edge materials and aesthetics every day could make for interesting results in 2013 so do keep an eye out for them. Take care and thanks again.
Gold leaf originals
Posted on: 16-12-2012
I will have 3 new framed originals available to buy on Monday 17th December from 9am, GMT. You can view a couple of them here now. The gold letters are all genuine 23 3/4 carat gold leaf which is an exciting first for me. It is such a beautiful material I fully understand why it has been so coveted through history. I hope these originals mark the beginning of a long and illustrious (as well as lustrous) relationship.
Thank you & please bear with me

Thank you so much to everyone who has ordered one of the new prints. I sincerely and truly appreciate it. Please bear with me while I process orders, I am somewhat snowed under. As a small thank you everyone who orders this week will get a handwritten label like this.
