This projected has been my most recent freelance endeavor - my first big hand-lettered piece!
The guys over at Sorso Coffee Co. in Airdrie, Alberta were looking for someone to do up a professional looking menu, on their gigantic chalkboard wall. A friend linked me to the hiring page and a couple hours later I was walking into the shop (nervous as all get out, terrified I was biting off more than I could chew), meeting the owner (lovely lovely guy!) and started doing some sketches.
Now, I'm 5'3" and I was standing on milk crates atop the bar counter, sweating my ass off and developing a serious ache in my already dead arm. After a few late nights after my full-time job, I completed the funnest project I've had the pleasure to work on.
