HT428 / Shva Meote שבע מאות. Seven hundred.
Today marks episodes of @aidpodcast. If you’ve read some of my insta stories lately, you already know how much Mark and co helped me grow and become a more thoughtfully creative person. I won’t try to sell you on @aidpodcast because the conversation does all the work already. Go give it a listen, and in one year from today let me know how it went. Happy 700, Mark and friends!

“Fanani banani” פאנני בנני. This week #goodtypetuesday asks for our personal mantra, and I either don’t have one or have a billion. Regardless: fanani, fab, excellent, and awesome are things you’ll hear me say regularly. Life is nuts, crazy things happen. I make the best of it by making it the best. (swipe to zoom) #typeforants .

HT378 / While sharpening pencils for all the @dappernotes orders, the shavings were coming out as these delicate little flowers. Of course I saved some to write on, and boy did I break most of the fragile things while trying to get some ink on them. In any event, this is shishi שישי (Friday), with the Hebrew version of #TGIF inked around the flower in this super #authentic layout. Have a fab weekend, and I hope to see some of you this Sunday at the NYC #summerofsketching meetup! .

HT390-4 / What do a grain of rice, pins, clay, an almond, and a pencil tip have in common? They all have the word "shalom" שלום (peace) written on them.
I hope that amidst the chaos right now this serves as a reminder that no matter how different you are from those around you, you have the power to make peace. Activism matters; it makes a difference. I myself am proof of that.
I used to hate, I grew up not understanding other people, and having no idea what it means to be and live amongst an eclectic group of people. It took many years of guidance from a fab uncle, my friends at MGSA, and conversations with my incredibly talented wife for me to finally learn to empathize. To see how everyone is different, unique, but also equally deserving. To stop myself from automatically-triggered biased thinking, and just do my best to be good to others.
I challenge you to do the same. Learn, and teach. And spread shalom. It makes a difference.

HT404 / When I saw that #GoodtypeTuesday is all about #foodtype, I knew I had to try something new. So I took a cherry tomato, a banana, and celery leaves, and married them all together to form sababa סבבה. “Sababa” is the definitive exclamation of agreement and happiness. It's like rad, fab, awesome, for sure, yeah, and alriight wrapped into one.
I’m feeling pretty sababa right now.
How about you?
A #sign I painted for my #dad who is now a #grandad of seven and counting! His shed is actually his office, he needs one to 'work' in but I don't know how much work goes on to be honest #type #typegang #typography #typeforants #letters #lettering #sign #creative #artist_feature #wood #paintedwood
