THIS IS IMPORTANT. Back in 2016 I made this print for International Women’s Day “Empowered Women Empower Women”. It was to recognize all the amazing women who truly inspire me each and every single day. This is a powerful time for women & we rise by lifting others, not stealing from others. I am extremely disheartened by the lack of ownership awareness I find online daily. It blows my mind that a fitness account with 8.8 MILLION followers can “inspire others” by reposting my image and not give credit. It blows my mind I find my designs on @amazon weekly from numerous accounts selling this design on t-shirts. It blows my mind that I made a piece about empowering women & quite frankly seeing other people profiting from my hard work doesn’t feel very empowering. I am saddened this week to see this “collaboration” between @papyrus and @aliceandolivia for #NYFW using using MY hand lettering. As an artist this is how we make a living. It is a shame to see so many big corporations consistently not acknowledge smaller artists, give credit where credit is due, and blantantly steal others peoples work to profit for themselves. To all my friends- THANK YOU for commenting on posts & making your voices heard . I really appreciated @timothygoodman posts the other week about crediting artists so I will end my rant with a quote from him “All of you who make stuff in the world: you deserve credit & you deserve to not be ripped off”. 🖤🖤

Oldie but a goodie ⚡️ I’ve spent tonight looking through some old work and it’s been so wonderful to see how far I’ve come in lettering & design in the last couple years . This pencil sketch is still one of my favorites 🖤

AMIRITE ? 💅🏻 I have been looking at a lot of experimental type for a project at work lately & I loved the use of rough pencil with bold graphics used on a music issue of the New York Times . Here’s my spin !
